Drawing Techniques: Five Weeks

Drawing Techniques: Five Weeks

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


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?

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?

You will learn all the obvious things you might expect of course, but just not starting from, or ending in, the obvious place.
