Drawing for Beginners


Tuesdays 6-7.30pm UK time - 30 Aug, 6 Sep, 13 Sep, and 20 Sep

This course is for anyone who has uttered the words ‘I can’t draw!’ Over four weeks, we’ll prove that wrong, together. Join artist Julie Galante for this series of live online workshops delivered via Zoom to a small, interactive, welcoming group.

Using basic drawing materials, we’ll practice various forms of mark-making using objects around us as subject matter. We’ll cover line drawing, shading and value, texture, and composition.

By the end of the course, you’ll have more confidence when approaching any kind of drawing.
