Although I’m very interested in drawing, despite my nonexistence skills, I’ve never made any serious attempt in learning, not sure why!
Today, that changed as I’ve joined a workshop in Kingston University (Knights Park Campus) where I did my bachelor a few years ago. The name of the course is “You Can Draw”. It’s fairly a small group; people with different range of skills, and we have a very good tutor. First lesson was just a loose drawing of the view from the window using charcoal, trying to understand the perspective. I enjoyed it very much and the 3 hours flew by! The next 5 lessons are going to be a mixture of different forms of drawing which I’m looking forward to very much!
I don’t think this workshop can actually teach me how to draw, 6 weeks doesn’t seem long enough to make an artist out of you! But I hope it will train my eyes to see better and understand the relationship between the objects so I can practice on my own, and it gives me the chance to try different materials for drawing… and of course, the joy of drawing!
