Skill level: all
The General Drawing short course is tutored by artist Michelle Caithness. You can find out more about Michelle here.
During this course, Michelle will introduce various classical strategies and techniques for drawing from Still Life. This course is well suited to people with some drawing experience who would like to return to a regular drawing or want to re-establish the foundations of their practice. We also welcome beginners in the course, as it will help you develop fundamental drawing techniques. If you are looking for a structured Introductory Drawing Course instead, click here.
We believe everyone can draw. Drawing not only brings many people joy, it is also therapeutic and with practice, impressive results can be achieved. Still Life is an important genre for every artist; enabling the exploration of elements such as line, composition, value or tone, space and nearly every type of texture. Drawing from Still Life can be the foundation of an artist’s practice.
Michelle will present a different Still Life set-up each week to focus on a different element of drawing. All of the drawing will be observational, from Still Life. Over the six weeks you will cover:
- Week one: Cylinders – vases, bowls and beautiful curves
- Week two: Creative botanical drawing – flowers in bloom
- Week three: Focus on folds – Still Life and drapery
- Week four: Darks and lights – painted fruit in light
- Week five: Texture – drawing fish
- Week six: Still Life using other media
This course is technical in focus but loosely structured, allowing for students to express their individual creativity. Students can use any of the mediums we supply – pencil, coloured pencil, charcoal or soft pastels. You are more than welcome to bring your own drawing materials too.
Our class sizes are limited to ten students to ensure Michelle can provide one-on-one tuition.
