Sheila Moylan’s six week Learn to Draw course is a hands on practical course in drawing that show you how using only a humble pencil to create the texture of soft skin, the hard shiny surface of glass, or how to transform a circle into a sphere that might just roll off the page!
- Look at the principles involved in drawing interiors and objects within them (perspective)
- How to give weight and depth to any image (tone/shadow)
- How to measure angles and shapes of what we see without rulers or protractors( just another pencil)
- How to add colour and create interesting and balanced compositions and produce work that you will be proud to show, even exhibit.
This course is designed for total beginners or those who are rusty or struggle with certain aspects of drawing.
