 Drawing for Absolute Beginners. 

18 Rabbit by Tania WilliamsEveryone has the ability to draw, once the skill has been learned. Attending drawing courses is one of the best ways to learn these new skills. In these 5 introductory drawing courses you will be introduced to techniques which will help you to discover the artist within. Everyone is creative, however due to our heavily ‘left brained’ education, many never realise their innate creativity as they have never been taught how to access their right brain.  The ability to tap into this undeveloped side of the brain is what separates creative people from people who consider themselves ‘un-creative’.

In the five drawing classes offered by ArteSpiral you will be learning various techniques, to enable you to become the artist you have always dreamed of being.

You will be learning the basics of drawing which include the following skills: the perception of edges, the perception of spaces, the perception of relationships, the perception of lights and shadows.  Before you know it you will be drawing effortlessly without being aware of it.

Below is an outline of the five different drawing courses offered by Arte Spiral

1.  Drawing out your Inner ArtistDrawing class

This level one class introduces you to your inner Artist.  In this class you will be introduced to the Right side of your brain; this is the part of you which allows your inner artist to thrive.  At the end of the course you will know how to access your inner artist whenever you need to, and you will be ready to begin your journey as an artist.

2. The Perception of EDGES

In this class you will learn about pure and modified contour drawing and how to do line drawings. Contour drawing is an essential technique because it is a strong foundation for any drawing or painting; it can potentially modify a subjects’ form through variation within the lines. Its objective is to capture the life, action, or expression of the subject.
At the end of this class you will have a finished line drawing to take home and frame.  If you have no prior experience it is recommended that you attend level one before attending this class.

3. The Perception of SPACES

In this class you will learn about Negative Space, in other words you will learn how to see what is not there.  Instead of looking at objects, you  look at where the objects aren’t.  Learning to do negative space drawing not only helps you draw more accurately, but also strengthens you composition.  As an artist it is important to see beyond the object to the space around and behind it.  You will also be introduced to basic light and shadow by working on a toned ground.  At the end of this course you will have a drawing to take home and frame.  If you have no prior drawing experience it is recommended that you attend level 1 or 2 before attending this class.

4. The Perception of RELATIONSHIPS

In this class you will learn about proportion and perspective using ‘sighting’.  You will learn how to bring together edges, spaces, relationships, light and shadow into a visual logic.  You will learn about the illusion of spaces.  At the end of this course you will have a drawing to take home and frame.  If you have no prior drawing experience it is advised that you attend level 1,2 and 3 before attending this class.

5. The Perception of LIGHT AND SHADOW

Learn to distinguish between different tones and how to make your art look three dimensional by learning shading techniques.  Usually our perception of light and

shadow is unconscious and in this class you will learn how to bring it into your conscious awareness, enabling you to create powerful three D images.  At the end of this course you will have a drawing to take home and frame.  If you have no prior drawing experience it is advised that you attend the other levels before attending this class.

Classes are kept small so you will get the attention you need.

The course includes all the necessary materials and tools to be used in the class accept for sketching pads.  You will need to purchase materials to use in your own time, and a list of these will be provided.

THERE ARE NO CLASSES SCHEDULED, BUT PLEASE STAY TUNED AS THEY WILL BE UPDATED SOON….
