Drawing for Beginners

Join us for a dynamic exploration of observational and experimental drawing techniques. Throughout this beginners' course, you'll learn to perceive the world as a dynamic space, open to various interpretations and representations.

Students will take inspiration from the Museum through its artists, artworks and architecture. Discover how artists interpret and process ideas, and the way curators create a world for us to explore.

Through a series of engaging lessons, you'll develop foundational skills in drawing, including life drawing, portrait techniques, and still-life studies. Embrace experimentation and foster a playful and loose approach to drawing as you explore various drawing tools, mixed media, inks, and surface treatments to uncover new avenues of expression.

In the final week, conclude your journey with a life drawing session featuring a live model, putting your new skills to the test!
