This 5-week sketching course will introduce you to the joys of drawing with a pencil. Through a series of projects, with the focus on landscape, you will learn to gain confidence to make beautiful pencil lines, understand tone and how to use different shading techniques, conquer perspective and draw a convincing tree. During this 5-week course, we will be more focused on landscape, looking at clouds, water and trees etc and the chance of going out into the park, weather permitting,This course is suitable for all levels from beginners to the more experienced. There will be something to be gained for everyone.
