Working with the Sketchbook (April 27th)


With Aidan Doyle

A one day course on:
Saturday, April 27th, 
10.00 – 16.00

Learn how to turn rough ideas into finished pieces of work using an artists most important tool, their sketchbook!

You will be provided with a sketchbook to work in and take home with you!

This course will assist you in developing your mark-making and compositional skills. Initial drawing exercises followed by colour compositional studies will allow you to explore these ideas visually, and build up thumbnail sketches that can be used to create more finished pieces of work. 

Working from life, photographs, your own memory and imagination, you will explore drawing techniques including line drawing and tonal studies. 

*Please note, you may be taken outside of the Arts Centre to draw from life. By purchasing a space on this course you agree the Arts Centre will not be held liable for your health and safety while you are working off-site, you are personally responsible for your own safety.
