Drawing Class: The strings, shadows and curves

June 2, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

£15 – £25

Join artist Cecile Simonis and Learning and Engagement Curator Sarah Deters to explore musical instruments from two different perspectives. First listen to a brief talk about the history and sounds of the instruments, then respond by making your own work and understand different drawing techniques in an artist-led drawing session.

This class will focus on drawing string instruments and rendering the light that falls on their beautiful texture and enhances their curves.

Reserve your place here.

Please bring with you:

A sketchbook (not too small-no smaller than A5), or a clipboard and a few loose sheets of paper

Brown paper or Grey paper (not too dark or too light, try to choose it mid tone. Kraft paper works)

A white pencil and a black pencils. The best ones for this techniques are the Derwent ‘Drawing’ pencils

An eraser and a sharpener
