'Just Drawing' Lessons

These classes introduce students to a range of different media and drawing styles on a week to week basis.

Students develop the techniques covered, to create a finished drawing. This will be the result of investigating 1 or 2 themes over each half term period.

This aims to develop confidence and build student knowledge.

Classes are teacher led with demonstrations on how to approach each task. Each 6 week period is adapted in line with the needs of the class and therefore is not rigidly structured to pre-set tasks.

Watercolour Lessons this half term
