One of my very favourite things to draw is old bits of china and tiles...slightly faded...a bit broken but still beautiful, they offer a wealth of abstract drawing, painting and collage opportunities. Your sketchbook page with look like a rather rambling and beautiful patchwork quilt by the end of the session and this, in turn, can be used to inspire your other creative interests.


The designs on the subjects we are sketching from, are already very illustrative and therefore much easier to draw than a lot of other things so you might find yourself freeing up and making lots of interesting and experimental decisions when it comes to materials and techniques during this class!


The aim of 'drop in and draw' is to provide an  opportunity to practice some techniques at home which you can then use whilst sketching in 'the wild'! Come and draw with me as we visit museums, collections, go on virtual city breaks,  and rummage through junk shops to find a host of interesting objects to explore...all from the comfort of our own sofa! Sketch quirky, beautiful and unique objects which all have their own tale to tell!


All of the drop in and draw sessions will begin with a demo of some techniques that you will find fun and useful to try out during the session which really help with getting going (something that we all of find difficult at times!). We will then have a go at drawing some objects, starting with quick loose warm up exercises and then moving onto longer timed sketches.  The aim of these classes is to sketch quietly and peacefully with opportunities to chat and ask questions inbetween each of the sketches. With regular drawing practice, you will grow in confidence and ability really quickly and your sketchbook will fill up in record quick time! All experience levels are welcome xx
