About the event

This colour pencil class is suitable for beginners and intermediate level artists. Some basic understanding of drawing and shading for realism will be useful, but not essential.

The class will begin with an overview of working with colour pencils on black paper, including warmup exercises to help you get used to the backwards way of working. We will then move onto experimenting with a few different pencil brands, and then you can choose a drawing to work on for the rest of the time. I'll be on hand to demonstrate different techniques, give advice and support as a group, or 1:1 as needed.

MATERIALS - There will be a wide selection of pencils and some popular black paper choices for you to try pn the day, though you might like to bring your own if you have them.

The main workshop drawing will be your choice from a few pre-selected images. These will be provided on the day.

By the end of the class you will have learned and practiced a few key skills and have completed a drawing on black paper. 

The Hayward Studio is a purpose built teaching space in a private garden. There are toilet facilities, and provisions for tea/coffee/water, but please ensure you bring something for a quick snack if you think you'll need it. 

The studio is not accessible for wheelchairs and there is a small step up and over into the studio.

Parking is available in the street outside.
