Are your drawing skills a bit rusty? Would you like to learn simple but effective techniques to help you draw what you see? If so, this could be just the course for you...

Come along and join our relaxed and friendly Thursday afternoon drawing group and be inspired by our beautiful surroundings. The aim of each session is to develop your understanding of art fundamentals through a series of imaginative and varied exercises. We’ll be looking at the work of different artists and there will be plenty of opportunity for discussion.

The course is led by classically trained sculptor Sara Myers and is suitable for those aged 16 and up.
