Drawing Techniques

Drawing Techniques

  • Tutor: Mark Beachell
  • Room: Art Room
  • Type: Adult
  • Level: Beginner


When everyone has a camera why do we draw?
Cameras have been around a long time but drawing is going strong.
This course will teach you to draw by exploring techniques, media and conventions from those used by renaissance artists through to cutting edge thinking about what drawing might be. Did you know you could draw with a silver spoon?
What about perspective? Or perspectives... all five... maybe six.
The sixth is the colour of distance, (same colour as Nitrogen if you were wondering?)
And how can you draw a thing really convincingly by drawing anything but the thing?
What can ordinance survey maps teach you about life drawing, and how can the game of battleships or a shaving mirror get your lines in the right place? How can a photocopier teach you to see properly?
We will learn all the obvious things you might expect of course, but just not starting from, or ending in, the obvious place.
