About the event
If you can sign your name then you have the dexterity to draw – it’s learning to SEE and interpret the subject that is important.
Carole will demonstrate a variety of techniques to help you to see and draw more accurately, to master shading techniques and create textures…and much more!
Working from a variety of natural objects, we will be looking at the effects that can be achieved by using different grades of graphite pencils, creating dramatic tonal contrast with charcoal, and doing ink drawings with both a twig and a fibre tipped pen.
By the end of the course you will be viewing the world in a whole new way!
Flatford Mill lies in the heart of the beautiful Dedham Vale. This charming hamlet was the inspiration for some of John Constable's most famous paintings, including The Haywain. The Field Studies Centre hosts art and nature courses throughout the year for all ages.
