Charcoal Life Drawing Weekend Workshop

Enjoy a weekend exploring the fantastic medium of charcoal! This hands-on practical course introduces you to the diversity of this material through a range of experimental approaches to life drawing, including colour and wash techniques.

Charcoal is not just a stick! Through a mix of traditional and more contemporary approaches, you will develop your knowledge of the diverse range of charcoal materials available including coloured charcoal, extend your drawing skills and increase your confidence with this material.

Led by Kat Ward Illustrator, designer and lecturer, this course offers a structured, friendly, studio environment for all skill levels involving demonstrations and individual advice. Part of the course will involve looking at the methods of artists such as Frank Auerbach, Jenny Saville, and Kathe Kollwitz.

This course is perfect for anyone looking to enhance their drawing skills and boost their portfolio or simply offers a fun filled creative weekend!
