Drawing Course for Complete Beginners

The course has been developed to help you to start drawing and improve your drawing abilities at the most basic level. You don’t need to have any previous drawing experience just bring a willingness to have a go and have some fun.


Each lesson is structured around a specific learning objective (see full Course Programme below). There is no figure drawing on this course. Classes are limited to 10 people so you get lots of individual attention.


Week 1: Overview of Drawing Concepts.

Week 2: Geometry and perspective. Learning to see.

Week 3: Shadow and tone. Rendering space.

Week 4: Understanding and exploring form, light and tone. Compositional considerations.

Week 5: Learning from the masters. Landscape.


Cost £125 , £40 deposit. Materials provided.
