Each session will start with an explanation of the week's instruction.
Participants are asked to take their workshop drawings home with them each week.
The rule of thumb is the more hours one puts into sketching and drawing, the better one gets! Each week I will make time to check sketchbook progress and help/comment on each person's progress.
I encourage participants to make the 8-week commitment for the course.

Week One:
Self portraits: Line, proportion, placement, the beginnings of your inner dialogue!
Week Two
Still life: Overlapping, placement, composition, the relationship of one object to another
Week Three:
Light and Shadow: Defining objects with light and shadow rather than line
Week Four:
Perspective: 2-point perspective, understanding dimensions, and drawing objects accurately in the space they occupy
Week Five:
Still life with boxes, cubes, and rectangles
Week Six:
Positive and Negative Space:
Identifying the space around objects
Week Seven:
Colour: the colour wheel, still life using a complementary scheme, adjacent colour schemes and tertiary colour schemes
Week Eight:
Final Still life in colour or material of choice.
