Beginners drawing

Jason believes that anyone with reasonable sight and co-ordination can learn to draw. In the 27 years he has been teaching drawing to adults, he has never had a student who did not improve their skills in a matter of weeks. Students who have jokingly stated they ‘could not draw a straight line’ at the start of a course have often drawn recognisable portraits from photographs in under 6 weeks. This good quality drawing was created by just such a learner who found they had a skill for portraiture they did not know they posessed before attending a beginners drawing course.

Students also gain a deeper appreciation for art as a consequence of learning to draw. They begin to see the world in a slightly different way. Learning to draw is like learning to read and write, it opens up a whole new world of creative opportunities.

So why not release your creativity and gain skills you did not know you could possess
