Bring out your inner artist by exploring the fundamentals of drawing and painting in this six-week course.

Start with the basics and understand how to use traditional drawing techniques to re-create still life objects on paper or to accurately depict the proportions of a face, progressing onto tone and colour to create a painting. Working in an intimate group, you will be able to get in-depth tuition from your teaching artist, to successfully advance from working with photographs to working from life. It is here that you can push your creativity and put your spin on the subject!

The skills gained from this course will give you the confidence to continue developing your own personal practice.

Tutor: Luke Thompson

Luke Thompson is an artist and musician based in Leeds. His methods are based upon contemporary realism, with a strong influence from classical practices. Through his own creative practice he aims to communicate the raw complexities of the portrait, finding a mutual connection of feeling between the subject, artist, and the viewer. Luke regularly takes on commissions and runs workshops across Yorkshire.
