Our Foundation Drawing and Painting courses will give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to develop a lifelong and autonomous practice.  The focus of these courses is not just developing your technical skills, but also expanding your visual literacy and critical thinking.

FOUNDATION DRAWING 1 is a 7 week class designed for complete beginners, and experienced artists who wish to revisit the fundamentals of drawing.

We begin working with pencil then progress to charcoal, and explore the diversity of using a variety of tools.  Throughout the course you will work through a series of practical exercises exploring elements such as line, space, shape, texture, value, tone, shading, composition and perspective.  You will also develop an understanding of how they collectively work together.

Each class builds upon the previous session with an emphasis on developing observational and analytical skills, building confidence, and material exploration.   The course includes one session introducing you to life drawing and access to all 27 Modules of Foundation Drawing 1 – On Demand.

Foundation Drawing 1 will help you work through fear and resistance, and embrace drawing within everyday life.
