Continuous line drawing

Arts Centre, Bideford

Who is this course for?

This is a course for the novice or those with experience. It will have both 2D and 3D outcomes and will involve two techniques that are new to you. Taught in a supportive and friendly atmosphere. Drawing skills not necessary. Come and make something and have some fun. 

Course content

This course is based on the ‘face’ and you will be making a series of drawings using a continuous line technique. This will be extended into a 3D piece of work using wire as a continuous line, but a line that you can move in space, opposed to a drawn line on paper. So you will have a series of drawings and a 3D piece

‘I love showing people new things and materials and helping them develop their skills. I believe everyone has a creative ability. We all drew before we could speak but sometimes this creative ability gets lost or buried. I like people to find what they never really knew they had.’
