This course is designed for students who have completed a 10 week Beginner Drawing course and wish to review what has been taught but with the added challenge of trying out different materials and subject matter. I will still continue to make this course structured so that you can be reassured that you are improving your skills. This course is really fun because we can produce large works and start experimenting to find out what we really like as drawers.
Here are only some of the kind of activities we may do but much of the course content is negotiated or designed to the unique characteristics and needs of the class.
- Experimenting with a variety of drawing materials e.g. chalks, charcoal, colour pencil, biro, pen and ink, pastel pencils, conte, different types of papers to work on.
-Exercises in improving visual perception and fine motor skills. Cloud drawing, negative drawing, blind drawing, continuous line drawing etc
- Drawing from 3 dimensional objects and life eg still life, plaster casts, urban sketching.
-Instruction on how to draw the head and features of the face from different angles.
- Sketching expressively and considering mark making.
- Looking at composition and how this can affect what you communicate in a picture.
- Developing observational skills further and consider, line, tone and form and texture.
- Lessons in 1, 2 and 3 perspective.

Social Distancing Considerations
I have kept the bookings to the class small while we are going through these challenging times. Another consideration besides spacing is dealing with drink and food. I am happy to supply teabags, coffee and milk but I regret that during these times I wont be supplying snack food. Therefore, I recommend bringing your own snacks and your own cups and utensils. This will avoid any unnecessary sharing that could reduce the chances of anyone catching a cold or compromising anyone's health.
I also politely request that if you are showing any signs of a cold, please let me know by phone and I will look for a time you can make up the class the following week at one of the other classes.
Booking Terms and Conditions
During these times it necessary to have catch up classes considering the issues stated above. I will do my best to allow you to fit in with one of the other classes to catch up. ie if you are attending a morning class, you have the option to catch up by attending the afternoon or evening class the following week.
However, there are two considerations that need to be taken into consideration. Firstly the catch up class must be taken within the period that has been paid for (5 or 10 week block) Catch up classes cannot be carried over to the next program or set of classes. Secondly, as class numbers are limited, a class that can accommodate an extra person will need to be found. Together we will try to find a time that suits but it cannot be guaranteed that the time required will be available. In this case the class will need to be forfeited as classes cannot be refunded due to personal circumstances or health.
In the case of the teacher having to cancel due to illness, the class or classes will be rescheduled or refunded in full.
