Drawing Challenge : David Lewry

"This course will offer a number of different challenges involving drawing media. Students will work in graphite, coloured pencil, charcoal, pen and ink and pastels to interpret a series of different subjects set by the tutor. There will be plenty of step by step demonstrations and full instruction for anybody new to a particular medium so it would be suited to beginners as well as more experienced artists. Students will be encouraged to try different media and subjects so as to develop their own style and interpretation. "
