Saturday 20th November to Sunday 21st November

Are you terrified of drawing but have a secret belonging to learn how to do it? Then Richard will guide you through certain processes slowly, gently and step-by-step. You will start the course experimenting with particular methods of learning to see perceptually. You will be able to record your observations in monochrome and especially in colour! 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 perceptually, you will be able to draw other subjects at home. Above all, the course is your first step towards a lifetime's adventure. John Ruskin said, 'I would rather teach drawing so my pupils may learn to love nature, than teach the looking at nature that they may learn to draw'.
lino 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.
