Draw with Me
Welcome to Draw with Me. This course takes a slightly different approach to some of our previous classes. With a slower pace, this gentle course will provide you the time and space to improve your observational drawing skills.
In each video session I’ll suggest that you draw along with me. We’ll work from simple, accessible subject matter that you can find at home, or if you prefer, you can work from the provided source images so your reference is exactly the same as mine.
As we draw I’ll talk you through how to start, what you’re looking for, and I’ll share my technique tips for achieving good results.
We’ll keep our media simple, focusing on what can be achieved with graphite and coloured pencil and you can choose to work in a sketchbook or on loose paper.
Through the sessions we’ll build our skills not only with drawing, but also with seeing and understanding our subject. Along the way we’ll explore:
- shading and tone
- line and outline
- value contrast
- colour play
Enrolment on this course also includes access to our Community page where you can chat with us and fellow students, share your work in progress, ideas and inspiration.
