Drawing Course

Next Course Starts 19 July 2016 in Stellenbosch


About the Course


If you think you’re not artistic and can’t even manage a stick figure, you are wrong! You will learn basic drawing techniques and find that by following these techniques, you will improve week by week. You will be hugely impressed with your (previously) hidden drawing talent. No prior drawing experience is necessary. The classes are small and each student receives as much individual attention as they ask for. The classes are limited to a maximum of 10 people. A comfortable and relaxed learning environment is created. In the past, students have ranged in age and occupation – retired teachers, secretary/PA’s, landscapers, pediatricians, IT gurus, as well as full-time graphic designers and artists. Everyone has found the course worthwhile. The course consists of 12 weekly evening classes. Drawing equipment (at an extra cost) and all paper is provided. For every technical exercise detailed notes will be provided so that you can keep drawing and practicing after the completion of the course. This course aims to build skill, confidence and creative thinking within drawing. Most of the classes are structured around drawing from life (i.e. a model) or following a creative brief. A balance is struck between technique and creativity.
