Yes! You Can Draw at Leeds Central Library, Leeds 22 January — 12 February 2022 Tickets from £0.00 — Book now

Embark on a journey with drawing. Yes! You Can Draw is a four week long beginner course that will give you the core artistic skills needed to develop a well rounded drawing practice.

Learn how to use a variety of media and explore the fundamentals of drawing. Make dynamic drawings where tone and contour takes centre stage, whilst developing your own idiomatic style. You’ll be drawing from both your imagination and by using observation, flexing creative parts of your brain that may not have been used for a while.

By the end of the four weeks you’ll have a collection of studies and a still life drawing to take away and inspire you to keep going.

All art materials and sketchbook are provided.
