WHERE ARE THE CLASSES?

At the moment all classes are ONLINE and take place live over Zoom.

HOW LONG ARE THE CLASSES?

About 75 minutes.

WHAT WILL I NEED FOR THE CLASSES?

Anything you can make a mark with: markers, pencils, ballpoint pens, crayons, pastels, charcoal, etc

Anything you can make a mark on: printer paper, a sketch book, cardboard, envelopes, artist’s paper etc

An internet connection, a device, and a Zoom account. These classes are 70% about learning the art of looking, and therefore best done on a larger screen like a computer or iPad, rather than a phone.

HOW ARE THE CLASSES STRUCTURED?

Lecture-based classes start with a slide show of examples from art history and visual culture that illustrate that week's focus. Then we do some exercises together to loosen up and explore ideas and techniques. We close with some show and tell, and finally, I leave you with a suggestion of a drawing exercise to work on in your own time.

Practice-based classes are spent exploring a specific aspect of drawing practice through various exercises.

If you are just looking for some inspiration, you can opt for only the lecture-based classes every other week. If you want more technical guidance, you can combine them with the practice-based classes for a set of 8 weekly classes.

I DON’T HAVE ANY DRAWING EXPERIENCE, IS THAT OK?

Yes! These classes are suitable for all levels, whether you haven’t drawn since school, or are a practicing artist. These classes are focused on encouraging you to see drawing as an exploratory process and practice. They are beneficial to established artists, in both reigniting curiosity in their own practice and revisiting foundations; and they are beneficial to beginners looking for a structured space in which to explore drawing. Although skill level is irrelevant, a sense of play is an advantage.

These classes are for you if you would like to invest in a beneficial practice that can reduce tension, increase focus, improve your visual skills and act as a creative outlet.
