On this six-week course you’ll explore drawing techniques from reference to a range of organic and man-made objects often with particular themes. The course will reference still life artworks by a range of artists and explore composition, measuring, line/tonal drawing, charcoal/pastel drawing and paint. Towards the end of the course participants are encouraged to assemble their own still life arrangement to act as a self-portrait made out of personal objects and/or objects of particular interest.
