Drawing and Sketching Risingholme

Drawing and Sketching

This course will offer you easy ways to learn to see, in order to record the world around you.  Each term has a different focus. 
We will cover all the basic art principles (which apply to any subject).  Learning to express yourself intuitively is of equal importance and many people already doodle, creating original works without being aware of it!  Simple materials like pen, pencil and paper are all that’s needed to get started, however a few extra materials will give you many more options. Please speak with your tutor re what Watercolour paints to purchase.

Cancellation/postponement/suspension due to extreme weather, Tutor illness or unforeseen circumstances

Wherever possible, we will offer replacement or extended sessions to make up for sessions cancelled/postponed/suspended due to extreme weather, tutor illness or other unforeseen reason.
