  • Guided by Dinah, you will train your creative eye so you can accurately record what you see.
  • Over the course of 10 weeks you can build both your confidence and your skills, developing your style stage by stage.
  • Using a variety of techniques, mediums and materials, you will learn to be more experimental and observant in your work so that you can develop your drawing further once the course is ended. 

What does this course cover?

You will be taught how to really ‘see’ what you are looking at and how to record what you see on paper, alongside exercises that will encourage you to be more focussed and experimental.


Please bring an A3 Sketchbook, Pencils (HB, B, 2B, 3B, 4B, 6B), a rubber, box of willow charcoal and a small box of oil or soft pastels.
