If you love to just pick up, lose yourself to time and just put down without fuss then pencil is the medium for you. One of the most understated art forms that can achieve astonishing results full of colour and the finest of details, it truly is a medium to relax to.

This course is suitable to all levels from beginner to intermediate, though maybe not for the impatient :D. Drawing skills will certainly be good but are not required, just a willingness to take the time to look and learn.

Primarily focussing on illustration techniques for wildlife and landscape and drawing upon literary and poetic sources of inspiration to create original and beautiful art. You will be guided through the techniques that are demonstrated at every stage and can be carried over into all subject matter.

Personal style and development are certainly encouraged in this friendly and relaxed session. Although the focus of the course is coloured pencil the use of graphite pencils is easily accommodated… and may even inspire a full term!
