Service Description

Note: this course is 10 sessions and does not run on the 23rd May. Have you got a set of pencils gathering dust and do you long to do something creative again? Or do you want to polish your pencil skills further? This course will encourage you to practice the techniques of drawing before refining skills using a variety of objects. Weather permitting, we take the class outside…! Claire Braeburn is an experienced teacher with Craven Arts who will encourage and enable you to try different technical skills. We will look closely at objects; their facets, shadows, perspective and composition while really getting to grips with the pencils. Rated ‘excellent’ across all areas for support, guidance and ability to encourage all levels’, Claire’s course is as much about meeting other like minded individuals who motivate and support each other, as it is about the drawing. ‘My favourite two hours of the week’ Rachel ‘I really enjoy this course…4th time. Claire is very informative and encouraging. Think I might do a 5th!’ Annette ‘A big thank you to Claire for all her help and support. As a beginner, her encouragement had given me more confidence and I have thoroughly enjoyed the course. The positive atmosphere in the workshop has also been good for my confidence. Thanks and see you again!’ Leigh Adapted to suit all levels, this course builds confidence and a sense of pride as well as a visible progression of ability. Often participants are delighted with what they have achieved, adventuring to drawing at home. This course allows you to see the beauty in everyday objects and challenges you to look at pieces differently.
