Art & Drawing School Course Schedule:


Day One

On our first day we will go back to basics focusing on pencil, charcoal and graphite drawing. Whether you are learning for the first time or refreshing your skills, this will be a fun and explorative start to the course. 

Day Two

We'll develop more drawing skills, learning to make objects appear three-dimensional using light, shade and tone. We will also touch on perspective and other vital skills in preparation for drawing outside

Day Three

On our third day it's time to venture out into the vibrant streets of London (weather permitting). You will learn to observe and draw what's around you, drawing people, food and buildings. Throughout the day you will be creating a travel journal and personal storyboard of the area. There will be an optional visit to one of the terrific art materials shops nearby. 

Day Four

Continuing to build on the power of observation, day four will start with a self-portrait exercise. In the afternoon there will be a life drawing session. 

Day Five

For the last day you will bring together all the skills you have developed throughout the week and create a drawing, painting or collage.  To celebrate the art you have created throughout the week, there will be an exhibition in the evening for family and friends, with your work on display. 

NB: Please note that the schedule is subject to change depending on the group of students and their needs as well as weather cirumstances. 

Exhibition


The week will culminate in a private exhibition of your and your fellow student's work. Family and friends will be invited to visit and celebrate your art.
