DRAWLAB: Sunday Drawing Club
Drawing sessions for adults and children 11yrs+
An informal drawing club for adults and children over 11, to practice different drawing approaches and techniques, using monochrome materials. There will be a particular drawing focus for each session: working on observational drawing from still life set ups on some weeks and drawing a clothed life model on others. All drawing materials are provided - paper, charcoal, graphite pencils, chalk, erasers etc. - but participants are welcome to bring their own wet or dry materials and specialist papers to use, if preferred.
Time: 3:30 - 5:30pm
Dates: 16/1; 23/1; 30/1; 6/2; (half term break); 27/2; 6/3; 13/3; 20/3
These sessions are suitable for all levels of experience, with plenty of input from the tutor to the group as a whole, and also to the individual. At the end of the sessions, there will be discussions of the drawings to develop skills of objective analysis in a supportive group.
