Wednesday 29th July to Saturday 1st August

Are you terrified of drawing and petrified of painting, but have a secret longing to learn such skills? Richard will guide you through certain processes slowly, gently and step-by-step. The course starts with experimenting with particular methods of learning to see perceptually. Thereafter you will be able to record your observations using graphite pencils, coloured pencils and watercolours. To keep your terrors at bay you will remain with the simple still life group for the duration of the course. Once you have learned certain principles and practices of drawing and painting, you will be able to attempt other subjects at home. If you follow Richard's 'recipes' you will be thrilled at what you can achieve.
Terrified RICHARD BOX is an artist and art historian. He has painted in oils and watercolours for many years and is now exploring acrylics. He has been developing his textile art ever since 1964 and he has written seven books, one of which is still in print - Basic Drawing Techniques.
