Practice drawing at home

By Šárka Darton, MFA alumna and Short Course tutor

In this blog post, MFA alumna and Short Course tutor Šárka introduces us to a series of drawing techniques and exercises we can practice at home.

Alongside a selection of short videos, there are accompanying written materials, which provide additional tips, background and suggestions for progressing each exercise.

These videos and supporting materials have been produced as part of our series of bite-size tutorials from the College’s expert Short Course tutors, designed to keep you connected with creativity and each other, and to provide inspiration. These videos are being shared daily on social media (@westdeancollege) and on YouTube here.
