course overview

This workshop emphasises a connection between body and movement, form and expression as the core of an experiential approach to drawing. Using simple materials and drawing elements – charcoal, eraser, pencil and paper, line, tone and shape – your drawings will evolve into more complex compositions. Lynne Eastaway guides you through a series of expressive and lively drawing exercises around familiar objects, and leads you into an investigative process for more extended and sustained drawings.

Lynne also presents examples of drawings and sketchbooks by practising artists that introduce you to the value of keeping a daily drawing practice within your own sketchbook. Develop a toolkit of basic drawing skills that can be taken into more personal projects, allowing you to begin to see the world and express yourself through the visual language of drawing. Individual and group feedback will push the possibilities of analysing the development of each student’s work.
