Class format and activities
This is a practical course and you will spend most of your time drawing. Your tutor will set different tasks for the class, as well as allowing you to develop a personal drawing style. There will be demonstrations and explanations of different subjects and approaches to drawing. Tuition is given to the whole class and on an individual basis. You will also be encouraged to take part in discussions of artists' work and to learn from each other's different ways of drawing.
