Drawing for Complete Beginners: David Lewry

"A complete basic drawing course for total beginners or those who really believe they cannot draw. Through a series of structured exercises the tutor will help you to overcome the fear of drawing and help you understand linear drawing, tonal drawing and the mysteries of perspective. From the very first lesson you will be producing accomplished and recognisable drawings covering a wide variety of subjects. No previous experience is necessary and a list of basic, inexpensive materials will be provided before the start of the course. This course is an extended version of David’s highly successful and popular day workshops which have helped to launch many people on a new artistic hobby."
