This very popular course themed around Natural History celebrates the craft of observation. We'll explore mindful drawing through ideas such as the importance of the intrepid amateur, the contrasting impulses behind a drawing, and the simple pleasures and benefits of observing the wonders of nature. A course brimming with colour, texture and a global cast of characters, both human and non-human!

TRAVEL (Oh the places you’ll go!)

21st JULY – 11th AUGUST | Thursdays 6pm SAST

A course for wanderlust. We look at how drawing has always been used to record travels and explorations, from the first known map of the world drawn almost 3000 years ago, to the spirit-world depictions of the San, to the Moroccan notebooks of Delacroix. As we draw the places we've been, to the places we long to go; as we delight in journeys both geographical and metaphorical, it's clear that both drawing and travel hold the promise of connection.

I have always been embarrassed by the squiggles that come out of my fingers and I am now drawing with great joy. It is a very thoughtful exploration of drawing as a medium and a catalyst for making marks that express something.Brenda

“Loving the classes and drawing again. It’s reigniting the fun in my practice, and reminding me why I love making.” Ruby
