Learn to draw using practical techniques as you develop your creativity within a supportive studio environment.

Deborah Marks guides you through the visual language of drawing in a logical and simple way to help build your confidence. With demonstrations and practical exercises on the essential strategies of line, shape, tone and mark-making, you will work from small studies to larger, sustained drawings.

Deborah instructs you in how to draw proportion, perspective and the figure/ground relationship in order to create unique compositions with subjects that include still life scenarios and the life model. In the course both representation and abstraction will be investigated, enabling you to have an authentic experience of the creative process using a variety of media such as charcoal, pencil and collage materials.

Covid-safe information

As NSW comes out of lockdown and we welcome students back to the NAS campus, we are prioritising the safety and wellbeing of our staff and students. In doing so, we request all students must be fully vaccinated or have a medical contraindication form completed by a health professional. You will be asked for evidence of your vaccination status on entry to the NAS campus. In line with NAS Covid Safety Guidelines, it is compulsory to wear masks indoors when on campus.
