Museum Drawing - mixed ability

QCXP005P

Subject area: Homecrafts

Course Type: Part Time

Course Overview

Drawing in the Museum! A wonderful way to get to know the exhibits! You will be led by an experienced artist specialising in drawing.


Course Content

The six sessions are divided between drawing in the Museum itself and follow up work in the Education room at the Ashmolean. The idea is that you draw and sketch and develop your drawings using different tools or media in any way that you choose.

Each week the tutor will take you through a specific planned task, demonstrating and supporting you, one to one. You will need to bring your own basic materials to use in the Museum - sketchbook or pad with a hard back, bull dog clip or masking tape and pencils only. Sharpeners must be enclosed or in a plastic bag. There is a small charge in addition to the tuition fee for materials to use in the Education room, such as drawing inks or charcoal. There is a cafe for refreshments or bring your own to drink in the designated area downstairs.
Please note that there will be no class running on: 28/05/2019.
