Intended for anyone who has ever picked up a pencil and wished that they could really draw. These practical workshops will look closely at different approaches to drawing, building the confidence and skills you need to use drawing in your own practice. A real journey of discovery into the process of drawing and mark-making. The workshops are also fun.

Dr. Alli Neal left her job as course leader for the BA in Fine Art at the Hereford College of Arts to complete a PhD on contemporary drawing practice. She is now concentrating on developing her own drawing and painting practice.
Basic drawing materials are provided but you may wish to bring your own drawing pencils, charcoal and soft rubbers.
