Summer school: The drawing journey - explore and experiment

The Mansion, Totnes

Who is this course for?

If you are looking to start out on a drawing journey and are looking for support in how to start then this is the course for you.

The course is a great for new learners starting to learn techniques for drawing or for those with experience looking to go start out in a new direction and would like some guidance.

Course content

This full day of experimental drawing is an opportunity to explore in greater depth the possibilities drawing has to offer.

We will work in a variety of media including pencils, charcoal, inks, chalks, oil pastels and more. There will be a focus on mark making and creating emotionally responsive drawings.

You will draw from observation, from imagination, individually and collaboratively. We will explore film and music as starting points for drawing also.

This course is highly individual and the journey you take through the day will not be the same as any other learner.

Support and feedback

Tutor led exercises/demonstrations will support your developing skills. Feedback is given through one to one’s throughout the day with a focus on your individual needs as well as group discussion.

Additional costs and requirements

Basic materials provided but you may wish to bring your own sketchbook and materials if you prefer

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?

There will be handouts with suggested tasks/research that you may wish to do in your own time but this is optional.
