Beginners Courses – Week 1

Welcome back!

Our first week back and plenty of challenges faced already.  The Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 1 started with this pencil drawing of a dog – focusing on tone and proportion.  The Beginners Birds Drawing Course did some great scaperboard drawings of Starlings.  Sorry, but I forgot to take photos.  You’ll just have to take my word for it that they were fab!  The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 2 jumped in at the deep end by starting with self-portraits in charcoal.  It’s always exciting to see what everyone produces in the very first lesson and I can’t wait to see what else you can do.

Looking forward to next week.

Beginners Courses – Week 7 & new courses starting in March 2019.

That’s all folks!

Yes, we have finally come to the end of the course and what a finish!  The Beginners Birds Drawing Course created these beautiful drawings of goldfinches using water soluble ink blocks.  In the Beginners Pastel Drawing Course we had a life drawing lesson and practised the proportions of the figure as well as using a more sketching style of working.  The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 1 also had life models and used all those skills they have been practising in previous week but this time on the real thing!  Great work everyone and big thanks to our models Isidoro, Shuchita and Josh.

You’ve been such lovely classes to teach this term and I hope you have all enjoyed it.  The good news is that you don’t have to wait long until we are back in class again.  New courses start on Monday 25th March and full details can be found on the Courses for 2019 page by clicking here.  If you have any questions about the courses or would like to book a place or if you would like to be added to my mailing list then please get in touch either by email at leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk, telephone 07788 871286 or via the Contact page.

Beginners Courses – Week 6 & new courses starting in March 2019.

Hi folks

This week the Beginners Birds Drawing Course shone the spotlight on the humble house sparrow, showing it can be just as beautiful as any of the more colourful birds in our gardens.  We used watercolour pencils for these drawings and experimented with colour mixing to create lots of varied browns.   In the Beginners Pastel Drawing Course we had the daunting task of self-portraits!  We worked through this step by step to produce some fantastic drawings.  The Beginners Portraiture Course Level 1 finally had chance to put all the pieces together in a full portrait this week.  Another week of fantastic drawings everyone – you always deliver!  One more week of this term to go.

The course dates for next term have now been announced and full course details can be viewed on the Courses for 2019 page by clicking here.  If you have any questions about the courses or would like to book a place or if you would like to be added to my mailing list then please get in touch either by email at leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk, telephone 07788 871286 or via the Contact page.

See you soon.
