The first half of the workshop will be spent drawing a manikin, it will help you learn about proportion and scale. We will add some shading/ mark making techniques and colour to your drawing. Your drawing could be quite detailed or simple, that's up to you. You'll have the option to work A5/A4/A3
In the second half of the workshop you will work from your drawing in order to create the wire figure. Don't worry, it might not look the same, there is always artistic license and as I call 'Happy accidents'!
It's a great opportunity to create a little sculpture and work on a drawing or two to take home with you! :-)

If only we had a penny every time we heard an adult cry out ‘I cannot draw', or' I’m rubbish' or 'I haven't done any art since school...Well...Our immediate reaction is ‘Oh, yes you can!’ We truly believe that any person can learn the skills of drawing and painting. It can be discovered and developed once you have learned the basics. We have seen the results first hand, experienced it in our teaching careers. It requires a slight change of mindset... It’s all about observation, the more you look, the more you see. The more you are aware of your surroundings by observing colour, shape, form, texture, pattern, the more you will gain the confidence to CreARTS! All workshops are inclusive of materials and a info worksheet. Individual attention is given to every artist to build on their skills. We will help you and ensure you will leave every workshop with pieces of artwork you will be proud to adorn your walls.
All materials will be provided. I'll bring some art references with me, but you are more than welcome to bring along any images that inspires you and give that ago.
