Sketching (Colour Pencil) –  for Beginners


Course Description:

This class is aimed at beginners in pencil sketching with the objective of getting to know the basics of realism in drawing.

We will start off with in-class sketching of subjects e.g. flowers, fruit, miscellaneous items using pencils/inks. There will also be classes on figure sketching and portraiture. Students will learn about composition, perspective, light and shading. The tutor’s approach will be ‘hands on’ with demonstrations of steps an aspiring artists can take to improve his or her work. Depending on the time of year and weather conditions, we may do some outdoor sketching focusing on landscapes, trees, buildings etc. As the classes progress, and students can more confidence, we will move on to colouring and the fundamentals of text, light and mixing of colours. The tutor will provide notes that expand upon the ideas and themes touched upon in the class. These will allow students to work on art projects of their own outside of the course.
