Drawing Skills (7 years old +) 

This course is about learning the basic skills of drawing and sketching.

This course is about learning the basic skills of drawing and sketching. We will begin the week by looking at shading techniques and using these to create realistic 3D shapes thinking about form and curves. We will then build upon these skills to consider light and shadow considering direction and how to highlight and darken areas based on this. Next we will begin to look at perspective by creating a street of houses, within this we will look at vanishing points to try to make our sketches precise and realistic. Finally we will take all the skills we have learnt to create a final still life picture.

Materials: Pupils may benefit from having a selection of sketching pencils (H's and B's) and some high quality paper however, this is not a necessity for the course.

Our Drawing Skills Camp will take place daily at the following schedule:

09:00- 10:00 am(UK time) 1st - 5th August
