About the course:
This course provides a comprehensive introduction to drawing with clear explanations of materials and techniques. Students will learn about line, value, mark making and shading and how to put these elements together in preliminary drawings. Using charcoal, graphite and pen and ink, you will look at basic shapes in nature, shadows, perspective and more. If you have always wanted to draw and not had the chance, then this class is for you!
Drawing needs minimal materials, is the easiest medium to carry with you in the field, and helps you to enjoy the natural environment by looking with a purpose.
Suitable for beginners and those wanting to revise their practice and build a solid foundation for their skills. A materials list will be available prior to the start of the class.
Class size is limited to 12 students.
Note: Hand hygiene and social distancing rules will apply throughout the course. Students are requested to bring their own drinks and snacks. NatureArt Lab reserves the right to change this class to an online tutorial format if required at any time.
