Learn to Sketch

with Richard Towers

6 Two Hour Classes, Starting 10-12, Tuesday 12th September 2017

 Whether keeping a visual diary, recording a holiday, or planning a bigger art project, the ability to sketch is a valuable skill. This course will teach participants the essentials of observing a scene and recording it using a range of media, including both monochrome and colour. It will focus on developing observational and drawing skills through keeping a sketchbook as a regular activity. The course will involve plenty of practical experience on a graded series of exercises.


(£100)inc. a sketch book and materials in class with the opportunity to buy materials at reduced prices.


Guided Drawing Challenges

Lead Tutor Phil Lockwood

6 Two Hour Classes, Fortnightly, Starting 2-4, Friday 15th September

(Half Term Break 27th Oct)

These fortnightly challenges will be different each session and give the attendee a wide range of situations for drawing. They will be aimed at a level that will challenge people with a range of experience in drawing. The tutor will give guidance but this is not really for absolute beginners. People who have previously done Phil Lockwood’s ‘Basic Drawing Skills’ course may like to use this course to put what they learned into practice.
