Having never done any drawing, I'm a complete beginner and this course was perfect. We learned the basics of shape and tone and I was surprised at what I'd produced by the end of the day. We worked for the whole day in charcoal which I really enjoyed. And the tutor was fantastic. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about the principles of drawing.
