Have you wanted to learn to draw people? Come and join in this workshop to help you uncover your artistic talent.

The workshop is designed for all levels but some previous drawing experience will be beneficial. Workshop will begin with an introduction to life drawing, before diving into the course content which will develop your drawing skills including the basic proportions, and the dynamic actions, and some advanced techniques like foreshortening and tonal balance.

You will receive teaching and support from David Flitcroft, an award-winning artist with over 20 years to develop your drawing skills and better understand how to represent the human form in your artwork.

At the conclusion of the workshop, you will walk away with tools, techniques and ways of looking at drawing... better understand how to combine your own personal expression with an appreciation of the life model, greatly improve your skills and take home your own drawing. Book here.
