Improve your drawing skills

This series of workshops will offer instruction on ways to approach the drawing of the human figure. It will deal with both gestural and structured approaches, through careful observation.

Join experienced drawing teacher Carole Lomax as she guides you through different ways to express the human figure with charcoal, graphite and pen and wash. Develop and refine your skills in the challenges of form, structure and foreshortening. Figure drawing is the cornerstone of artistic practise and a centuries-old training tradition.
