Drawing for Everyone with Jody Graham

Course overview

A fun and relaxed drawing class for anyone who loves to draw, or would like to learn how to draw. This term will focus on drawing humans and things related to us – i.e. portraits, figures, cafe, bus, train people drawings, hands, clothes, maybe a life model one week too. This will be good for students already working with elements of the human form and things related to it and will be good to get into if its something you avoid! Great to tackle a challenge and come out the other side with new skills and knowledge. Students will also practice using a range of drawing media that can include charcoal, pencils, ink, watercolour and pastels. The class is designed for new and continuing students and each term students will explore new media, methods and subjects. All levels are welcome in this friendly class: from enthusiastic beginners to those with prior experience.

This drawing class is available Monday evenings or Tuesday daytime.

What to expect

Over the 8 week term, students will learn :

  • about observing and drawing shape, volume, perspective and tone
  • to draw with gesture
  • about mark making, texture and different qualities of line
  • about abstraction
  • about composition
  • about colour and different colour palettes and how it effects composition
  • how to find their own style, while having fun!

Ochre’s teaching style is relaxed and fun while still teaching essential skills and concepts. This course is structured around one to two week projects.

Is this course right for me?

This course is suitable for enthusiastic beginners to those with prior experience. Beginners will be guided through exercises and those with prior experience will be encouraged to extend their skills with more challenges. Suitable for new and continuing students.

Course testimonials:

  • I most enjoyed the range of medium we explored. I also liked the way the lesson started with real life examples of what we were aiming for with explanation of the technique used. Ochre had excellent knowledge of technique and she achieved a good balance of giving us space to explore and experiment, as well as advising along the way.
  • The course was a great introduction to drawing and it was amazing to see the amount of progress on can make with a few easy tools and time to practice.
  • Great course, great instructor
