Drawing is an innate skill used instinctively before we can write. It is also the place to start for all forms of visual art. If you want to re-kindle your imagination, develop new skills, and get in touch with your inner artist, this is the place to start.

The more you draw, and think about drawing, the more you will see.

What to expect on Beginners’ Drawing

You will be guided through different drawing materials and techniques. The course will offer an introduction to tone, composition and markmaking.

This course could also be called ‘learning to look’. Once you learn to look, and to notice, you will be encouraged to record what you see.

Indian ink drawing

There will be optional homework.


  • charcoal
  • drawing pencils, 3B, 5B and 7B
  • cheap propelling pencils available in packs from supermarkets
  • rubber, pencil sharpener,
  • Indian ink and bamboo dipping pen
  • Pad of cartridge paper, A1 min weight 140gms
  • Sketch book for homework

We get through quite a lot of paper so I recommend newsprint paper (available from Amazon), or wallpaper lining paper.
