A special one day drawing-workshop aimed at learning fundamental drawing skills of seeing, proportion, perspective, composition, tone and value. Students will learn how to discern between the different drawing mediums of willow and compressed charcoal, pastel, graphite and ink. Students will learn how to maximise the effect of each of these materials to achieve their drawing potential. 

Looking at master artist drawings of pointillist painter Georges Seurat and Post impressionist artist Vincent Van Gogh students will apply Seurat and Van Gogh techniques to drawing still life objects of their own choice.

Rachel will conduct demonstrations and provide individual feedback to students throughout the day.
