Learn to Draw is a hands on practical course in drawing that shows you how you can use just 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)
  • Learn how to give weight and depth to any image (tone/shadow)
  • Learn how to measure angles and shapes of what we see without rulers or protractors (just another pencil)
  • Experiment with colour and learn how to create interesting and balanced compositions
  • Shall 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.

By the end of this Learn to Draw course, you will be more confident in your mark making ability and be able to draw still life, interiors and of course, people.

Sheila uses notes to highlight techniques and handy tips during the workshops. We shall email them to you once the course is finished so that you can continue your development at home, in your own time.


We provide the following materials

  • A set of Sketching Pencils
  • A Hard Backed A3 Sketchbook
  • Eraser, Sharpener & Ruler
