Continuous line drawing and wire heads

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. The drawings will range from a 3-minute study to a 15 second drawing, including drawing where you can’t see your paper and drawing where you can’t see the subject. This will form the basis for a 3D head construction made from wire, which is also a continuous line technique.

You may be eligible for a learner bursary if you can demonstrate that attending a course will improve your wellbeing. Eligibility is determined after a short interview with a member of our learning support team. You must be aged over 19 on 31st August 2019 to access this fund.
