Approaches to Drawing Beginners

Gosford Regional Gallery

This class is aimed at beginner drawers interested in learning some necessary basics to drawing. Gain confidence and discover your strengths - this is suitable for those with no previous drawing experience, or those wishing to get back to their creative sides after a long break. Each lesson students will be guided through drawing exercises starting from the very basics and building up their knowledge and skills each week. We will look at mark making, proportions, perspective, light and shadows.


A selection of pencils (2B, 4B, 6B recommended), A2 drawing pad (good quality drawing paper such as Canson recommended, avoid Bond or thin drawing scrapbooks), eraser/sharpener, willow charcoal, drawing ink, calligraphy brush or larger round nylon brush (size 10-12), a few sheets of good quality watercolour paper (5x A3 sheets will suffice).

Optional Materials: kneadable eraser, spray fixative, small A5 sketchbook for notes, white conte stick, dip pens or bamboo calligraphy pen, basic set of watercolours.
