Daring to Draw

This course will explore drawing as an engaging, active and challenging process using both observational drawing and more abstract methods to help students connect with nature and the rugged landscape surrounding Jack Beck House. The course will ask you to be active in the process of seeing and looking with the aim of translating what you see into your own personal vision. You will be introduced to a variety of different drawing media and subjects that will help to expand your ability and confidence to draw. By experimenting with scale, materials and tools of application the course will aim to reveal how drawing can be a vital tool in understanding the visual world. The course would suit those with no experience and also those that use drawing regularly, the aim being to share in the learning of what comes from daring to draw.

Prepared primed papers for oil and selected drawing materials will be provided by the tutor for a small fee of £5 per person.
