No previous knowledge or experience is required, just lots of enthusiasm, willingness to learn and a desire to have fun. This is a very loose style of drawing and so very suitable for beginners.
This is a relaxing and friendly course with step by step demonstrations. You will be gently guided through different drawing activities. You will be encouraged to ignore any past thoughts (I can't draw) not to worry about the future (what will it look like) but to concentrate on the moment in time. Each week will focus on specific elements used within art with a different subject.

By the end of the course you will be able to…

  • Create at least five different types of mark using at least two different tools
  • Apply shade to an area of a shape using the cross hatch shading technique to create a form
  • Create several sketch studies and at least two in depth drawings applying the elements and principles of art and design learnt throughout the course
  • Describe how mark making can improve your mental health
