Learning the basics of drawing with simple lines and perspective. I will guide the class to draw objects from life with simple shapes and one object set ups.
Week 2: Drawing a simple still life

Building on from week 1, I will teach the class how to draw multiple objects together. Then utilising the skills taught in week 1 and 2 I will have the class draw a simple, multiple object still life.
Week 3: Light and Shadows
- Light and shadow

In week 3 I will teach the class shading techniques and how to use this to draw the fall of light and shadow on simple objects. In the second half of the lesson I will teach the class how to use grey paper as a mid-tone surface for tonal drawings.

The course will finish with the class using all the skills they have learnt to produce a black and white tonal drawing on grey mid-tone paper of a multiple object still life.
