The course focuses on learning correct drawing techniques and teaches the art of drawing through practical demonstrations and one to one assistance throughout each session.

The course has a progressive structure with a new technique and a particular area of drawing being covered each week.

For the first few sessions the tutor will bring in objects and images for the class to draw, after which the students will be encouraged to bring in their own objects/images suggested by the tutor.

This course is not formally assessed but students will be taught via group activities, practical demonstrations and one to one tutorials. Each week a class handout will be provided which gives further information on the class and topics covered during that particular week.
