Pure drawing is a wonderful introduction to the subject, Art. If you are feeling unconfident and rusty, this course is a great starting point that can lead onto a painting course in due course.


Apart from being a pleasurable pastime, drawing also has lots of other benefits. It is good for the soul. I teach students to draw using the right side of their brain. It helps relieves stress,  developes mindfulness, boosts creativity and problem solving  and resilience.  During the course of a year I will teach the basic skills of drawing and you will learn to perceive as an artist.

How to perceive edges, spaces, relationships, angles, proportions, light, shadows and shading.
