First Steps:
Taking time to look and draw

Autumn Term starts 23rd September (no session 28th October).

During this ten-week course we will learn to look carefully at objects and images and observe shape and line. We will work in a peaceful environment that encourages quiet concentration. We will use artist pencils and crayons to learn to draw calmly and slowly to develop an understanding of drawing tools and confidence to use them.
