The following online courses will be running from Monday 25th May 2020.
“Pencil and Paper” Part 2: Online Beginners Drawing Course – Morning course: 10.00am – 10.30am
“Pencil and Paper” Part 2: Online Beginners Drawing Course – Evening course: 6.30pm – 7.00pm
Please specify which time slot you would like when booking.
The courses will run for 5 weeks and cost £25. These courses are free to any NHS employees as a thank you for helping us get through all this. Just send me a photo of your staff card when you book. 10% of all course fees will be donated to The Trussell Trust who provide vital foodbanks all over the UK (for further information, visit their website at: https://www.trusselltrust.org/.
This course is specifically designed as a drawing course for beginners using just pencil and paper (and maybe a rubber and pencil sharpener might be handy too) so that those with limited art materials at home are still able to join. As subject matter, we will use everyday objects from around the home that most of us will have.
Please note: you do not need to have completed “Pencil and Paper” Part 1 in order to join this course. Both courses are stand alone courses and are aimed at beginners.
The lessons will be delivered via a 30 minute online live chat/demonstration in which I will explain each task and you will be able to ask any questions. We will use “Zoom”, an online web conferencing program and you will be sent a link on how to download this with your booking confirmation. Zoom is free and you don’t need to set up an account. You will be sent a link before the start of the course which can be used each week to take you straight to the lesson.
Following the lesson you will also receive a link to a 30 minute recorded video of the whole picture being drawn by myself from start to finish in time lapse together with instructions along the way.
I will also email you an information sheet following the lesson with step by step instructions on how to create the drawing.
Once you have produced your drawing I would be happy to receive any photos of your work via email, text or WhatsApp and would gladly offer any advice or feedback that you might require.
At Leeds Art Group we do like to show off our wonderful creations! So if you send me a photo of your work there’s a good chance I will put it on this website or our Instagram page @leedsartgroup. If you’d prefer me not to do this, just let me know. Or if you’d prefer to do your own showing off then you can join the Leeds Art Group WhatsApp group so that you can all post your masterpieces on there whenever you like and see what the rest of the group are doing.
If you have any questions or would like to book a place please get in touch by either email:email@example.com or telephone: 07788 871286.
Stay safe and I hope to hear from you soon.
