“Pencil and Paper”Part 2 – Week 5

Hi folks

For the final lesson of this course we were drawing the view from our window and looking at what marks we could use to describe the shapes and textures we can see.  Some lovely, expressive drawings this week, well done.  It’s been great for me this week, getting the chance to see what you can see out of your windows and I know you’ve been enjoying seeing each others gardens and streets on the WhatsApp group too.  Here are some photos of your work and there are more on our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

As we come to the end of this current course and are about to start Part 3 on Monday, I’d just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you who have joined the online lessons over the past 10 weeks (yes, it really has been that long!).  Without seeing you all on a Monday I’m quite sure I would have gone stir crazy by now.  So I hope the lessons have helped you all through this a little bit because you’ve definitely helped me.  Thank you.

Looking forward to starting the next course on Monday.  Cheerio!

Wendy

“Pencil and Paper”Part 2 – Week 4 & New course starting June 2020

Hi everyone

This week’s task was to draw a tin or cylindrical object so that we could practise drawing ellipses and also think about how letters/images curve around the tin.  Great work everyone, you’re really thinking about all the aspects of the drawing and what you need to consider as you draw.  Well done! Here are some photos of your work and there are more on our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

Don’t forget – the “Pencil and Paper” Part 3: Online Beginners Drawing Course starts on Monday 29th June 2020 and the closing date is Thursday 25th June.  For full details visit our Courses for 2020 page.

If you require any further information or would like to book a place, please get in touch either by email:  leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or telephone:  07788 871286.

New courses starting 29th June 2020!

Hi everyone

I’m pleased to inform you of the next Leeds Art Group online courses starting Monday 29th June 2020.

 

“Pencil and Paper” Part 3: Online Beginners Drawing Course – Morning course: 10.00am – 10.30am

“Pencil and Paper” Part 3: Online Beginners Drawing Course – Evening course: 6.30pm – 7.00pm

For full course details go to the Courses for 2020 page.

This term 10% of all course fees will be donated to Hope Pastures Horse and Donkey Sanctuary who provide a home for rescued animals.  I walk past this place everyday whilst walking my dog and see the volunteers working tirelessly to care for the animals.  Like many places, they have been affected by the current lockdown situation and have to operate with much fewer volunteers.  Since they’ve had to close their gates to the public they have lost vital income from open days and it would be great if Leeds Art Group could raise a few bob to help them out.  For further information go to their website at:  www.hopepastures.org and I would highly recommend reading “Banjo” the Donkey’s blog.

If you have any questions or would like to book a place on a course please get in touch by either email:leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or telephone: 07788 871286.

Stay safe and I hope to hear from you soon.

“Pencil and Paper”Part 2 – Online Beginners Drawing Course – Week 2

Hi everyone

This week I asked you all to draw plants and to really look closely at how different the individual leaf shapes can be on the same plant.  Fantastic observation drawing from all of you this week.  Your plants look brilliant!

Don’t forget you can see more photos on our instagram page @leedsartgroup.  Many of you are posting your wonderful drawings on the Lees Art Group WhatsApp group so if you haven’t joined already then let me know your mobile number and I can add you to the group.

See you all next week.

Wendy
