This friendly and relaxed weekend workshop introduces the core skills of drawing through a series of guided exercises led by tutor and artist Lancelot Richardson.
This workshop is designed for complete beginners who want to start drawing from scratch or as a refresher for anyone who wants to tune up their drawing skills and experiment with new approaches to drawing what we see.
What to Expect
  • Day 1 – We’ll begin with an introduction to sketching with line and shape, experimenting with a variety of different approaches to mark making.
  • Day 2 – On day two, we’ll explore tone and drawing three-dimensional forms, finishing off with some energetic dynamic gesture drawing in the afternoon.
Expect to work from a variety of different sources throughout this workshop, such as still life, imagery, and video, with plenty of guided exercises. This workshop will also introduce common drawing materials, including pencil, ink, and charcoal, but you are welcome to bring your own.
The workshop runs from 10am-4pm on Saturday 20th - Sunday 21st January, with a 1-hour lunch break from 1-2pm. There will also be extra tea breaks throughout the day.

I'm an artist and illustrator based in Brighton, South East England. I love to draw and paint, creating work both from life, and from imagination. I work across a variety of mediums, including but not limited to oils, digital painting, ink, printmaking, and good old pencil-to-paper drawing.
