Hi everyone, as it’s half term next week a few of you asked me if the drop in class will still be going ahead for Wednesday May 28th. So I’m just confirming that it will definitely go ahead as usual. Hope to see you all there!
From Wednesday May 14th Leeds Art Group will be meeting every Wednesday 10am – 12pm at Headingley Parish Hall, St Michael’s Road, Headingley, Leeds, LS6 3AW.
Everyone is welcome. You don’t need to be a member of Leeds Art Group and you don’t need any drawing experience.
If you enjoy drawing and would like to join like minded people, in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, please come along to one of our sessions.
Basic materials are provided along with subjects to draw but you are welcome to bring your own materials/objects. Everyone can work at their own pace and the tutor Wendy is on hand throughout for advice.
Price: £7 per session (no need to book in advance)
Free tea, coffee and biscuits are provided and occasionally cake if you’re lucky!
Well, the last 8 weeks seem to have flown by and here we are at the end of the course, I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have. We didn’t finish off with anything easy though – we looked at how to draw reflective objects. It’s very time consuming but really worth the effort as it can give some fantastic results. You’ve all come so far with your drawing skills since the start of the course, especially as some of you were complete beginners! Well done, be proud of yourselves! The drop in sessions will be starting from next Wednesday (see post above). So I hope to see some of you there. If not, then have a lovely summer and I hope to see you all soon at future Leeds Art Group courses.
Sadly this was the final week of the course and I really think you all saved the best for last! We tackled “Reflections” this week. It’s a really tricky thing to do but you all did brilliantly and created some amazing drawings! It’s been great teaching you all over the past eight weeks and seeing your individual styles emerging. I’ve loved seeing the work you produce each week and you should all be really proud of what you’ve achieved. I hope you’ll continue to practise your pastel drawing skills and I hope to see you all at future Leeds Art Group courses. Have a great summer!
This week we practised drawing hands as people often find these difficult to draw. You all did really well. I think the hardest part was keeping your hand still. Sadly it’s our last week of the course next week but don’t forget that the drop in sessions will be continuing from May 14th, same time, same place (10am – 12pm). You don’t need to book in advance for these sessions and you can come to as many or as few as you like – just turn up and draw. The cost per session will be £7. See you all next week.
This week we practised drawing the human figure. A couple of quick sketches first to get the hang of it and then one long pose. You all took to this really well and I can tell that you are all thinking a lot more about proportion in your drawings and making sure you get this right. Some great drawings as usual. Special thanks to our model Ellie for doing such a good job.
