Would you like to learn how to draw what you see? In this class you will explore various techniques to capture the essence of what you observe! Whether you are completely new to drawing or have some experience, everyone is welcome to enjoy this casual and unique drawing class. You can relax and unwind with short, guided drawing warm-ups, followed by long and sustained poses or still life subjects. With the help from your experienced tutor, you will get the chance to explore the power of observation, the main principles of drawing and how to create compelling compositions. You'll also learn about the importance of line, value, texture, form and explore the mediums of graphite, charcoal, pastels, and coloured pencils. This class will cover: • The core principles of drawing and how to create a compelling artwork. • How to consider shape, form, proportion, texture, value • Expert methods for realistic drawing. • How to use drawing as a solid foundation for future artworks. • How to train your observational skills. • How to draw in a relaxed, energetic, and confident way. You will get the opportunity to draw from a range of references: still life scenes, nature, and models. Through demonstrations, exercises, and one-to-one tuition, you will be supported in developing your observational drawing skills. In our small sized, casual classes, you can experiment with diverse materials and you are welcome to work on your own individual ideas and projects. This class runs regularly, and the class sessions are not connected to each other, that means you can book a session (or several sessions) whenever it suits you best. MATERIALS: You only need to bring basic materials to your class such as: drawing sketch pad (A3), set of graphite pencils (B-8B), eraser, sharpener. Feel free to bring your favourite materials, something to drink and snacks! HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE: We are focusing on traditional art making and hand drawing/non-digital drawing! Through this physical and tactile experience, you will get a broader view how this material can be used and the physical creation will improve your hand-eye coordination as well as motor skills. Furthermore, traditional artworks are hard to copy, each handmade creation will show your personal style and will be truly unique! Duration: 1.5h, 2h and 3h sessions are available in Albert Park and Hampton. Requirements: This is a beginner friendly class, age 18+
