Drawing is FUN. It is immediate and exciting, occasionally frustrating, sometimes impossible, but ALWAYS encourages you to look afresh, to see more and to think about everything in a new way.
Join us and some of our new tutors as we start the new term, and academic year, with a workshop of drawing in the studio at Bransbury. This will be an exciting few days trying new approaches, having fun exploring traditional drawing, and joining the tutors in their own particular drawing approaches.

Drawing is at the heart of our courses at Hampshire Art studio.
There are numerous definitions of drawing, some more helpful than others. Drawing offers a space to think and explore ideas. It can be 2D or 3D. It can be the creation of an individual, or a collaboration. It can be in colour. It can be a line, a word, a smudge. It can be technical or expressive. It can be ‘how to…’ or ‘why?’, just for the hell of it, or as an end in itself.
We FIRMLY believe everyone can draw. It is our job to help you find the confidence and the skills to draw as you want to draw.
Join us for this workshop to explore some of the options.
During the Renaissance the term ‘disegno’ implied drawing both as a technique to be distinguished from colouring and also as the creative idea made visible in the preliminary sketch. Despite this insistence on the formation of line and the implied lack of colour, few would deny that a work formed by dots or shading or wholly in line but in a range of colours is a drawing.from Victoria and Albert website.
What to Expect from the Exploring Drawing Workshop
Over the course of the three days you will be introduced to different approaches to drawing, to collaborative drawing, expressive drawing and a more detailed, technical approach. You will be experimenting with different materials and techniques in an open and approachable way. It is tiring, but exciting and thought provoking too.
New tutors, new materials, new methods.
