The course will begin with short exercises after which you will make a sketchbook/artist book. You will be taught how to develop a range of techniques and how to create atmosphere, depth and tone. You will also learn traditional techniques alongside more innovative methods.
By the end of the course you will have gained confidence in a range of drawing techniques and be able to use different materials together. You will have produced a large body of work consisting of short experiments and a beautiful book.
