Do you want to learn practical drawing techniques and encourage your creativity to emerge in a supportive studio environment?

Learn about the importance of line, tone, composition and mark-making and explore the mediums of graphite, charcoal and ink. Rachel Fairfax sets projects and gives you the opportunity to draw still life scenes and to work from the life model. Through demonstrations, group exercises and one-to-one tuition, she guides you in developing your own way of seeing and drawing.
