“Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.” David Bowie
To coincide with his solo show After the Light from 13 May-24 June at The Art Shop, this will be a supportive and informal drawing class with a professional working artist. Practise drawing from observation, wherever you are on your artistic journey, using demonstrations and exercises to build confidence and develop your artistic abilities. Starting with line, you’ll explore the fall of light over surface. As you draw, you’ll grow your skills in composition, mark-making, tone and measurement; leave feeling that you can step a little deeper.
