Maybe you’ve attended online life drawing classes, maybe you’ve had a go at sketching the trees in a park or perhaps you just drew round some objects to create an abstract image. Whatever the level, whatever the style, Louise Garman is hosting a workshop that will have you finely tuning your skills and teaching you fundamentals on how to draw.
Lousie, a Manchester based visual artist, will guide you through the possibilities for improving the line, tone, texture and composition of your sketches. With easy fixes for difficult tasks, and techniques which you can go away and develop over time, this workshop will have you eager to pick up the pencils again.
Drawing can be massively beneficial for individuals mental health. It allows your brain to slow down and concentrate on a singular task for a moment. Letting the worries, concerns and stresses of daily life fade away into white noise and eventually nothing.
There will be a mixture of worksheets for you to warm up with followed by still life studies. With Louise on hand to guide you as much or as little as you need, you can be sure to walk away from How To Draw with a toolkit of useful tips to take into your own sketching practise.
