INVESTIGATING THE WORLD OF PENCILS         1/2/3/4/ or 5 days

 

Nearly everyone has a pencil set somewhere in a drawer at home and it remains unused because they are not sure how best to use them. Mostly perhaps, it is that pencils are underrated; a kid's medium or for adult 'colouring in' and even when you do get them out of their hiding place what paper do you use? How can you overlay colour and what on earth do you do with 'watercolour pencils'? It can be bewildering when there are so many types of pencil and a vast array of different papers to choose from. On this course you will get the chance to try out the different pencils varieties (e.g. wax, oil, pastel, graphite, pastel, water-soluble, inktense, graphitint) and which papers they work best on. We will work on your drawing skills, and discover which pencils and paper suit your own style of work. This course will suit both complete beginners and those who already have experience of working with coloured pencils. This will run as a 5 day course, but days can be booked individually if desired. Please bring any pencils that you already have although I will supply all materials needed at a cost of £5 a student.
