Beginners Courses – Week 7

Hi everyone

Here we are at the end of the course and look at the fantastic work you’ve produced.  The Beginners Portraiture Course finally got to put everything they’ve learned into practice by drawing from our life models and what brilliant results.  The Beginners Drawing from Nature Course finished with very colourful ink block drawings of blackberries.  The Beginners Drawing Course Level 1 also had a life model and looked at the proportions of the human figure.  Big thanks to our life models Kate and Ros.  Great work everyone and thank you for all your help and hard work this term.  You been lovely classes and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed teaching you all.

If you would like to book a place on one of next terms courses then please get in touch either by phone on 07788 871286 or email: leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk.  Full course details can be viewed on our “Courses for 2018” page.

Hope to see you all in 2018.

Bye for now.

Beginners Courses – Week 6

Hi folks

This week the Portraiture course started to fit all the different features together by drawing children from photographs.  The Nature course used black biro to create tonal drawings of toadstools and added hints of colour using coloured pencils.  The Drawing course had the daunting task of producing self-portraits this week and they did an excellent job.  Great work everyone!

Next week is sadly the last week of the current courses but if you wish to book a place on one of next terms courses then please get in touch either by phone on 07788 871286 or email: leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk.  Full course details can be viewed on our “Courses for 2018” page.

See you next week.

Beginners Courses – Week 5 & New Courses for 2018!

Hi everyone

In lesson 5  the Portraiture course looked at ears – an element of portraiture that often gets overlooked as if they are less important than the other features – not so!  We also practised drawing hair and using tone to create the impression of three dimensional form.  In the Nature course we drew sections of a photo of conkers using watercolour pencils.  A tricky medium and one that takes a bit of practise but worth the effort.  The Drawing course did some timed drawings to help work out how to put together a drawing from scratch.  Well done everyone.

The dates for next terms courses have now been confirmed and full details can be viewed on our “Courses for 2018” page.  If you have any questions about any of the courses or you would like to book a place then please get in touch either by phone on 07788 871286 or email: leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk.

See you soon.
