Charcoal Large Scale Animals - FEB with Gillian Grove

SOLD OUT - Feel free to join the colour version of this class on the Sunday. Learn how to draw large scale animals with Artable owner Gillian using a range of drawing materials including charcoal. Book this 1 day Saturday workshop on its own or book the 2nd Sunday workshop the following day to go and learn about colour using pastel.

In this workshop we will look at tonal value for finding perspective, using texture and effects for focus and how to find a likeness. Learn how to make the artistic process more simple so you enjoy the creative process more!

Gillian will be working with you to strengthen your current drawing skills to move your drawing to the next level and to have a process around how to create upscale drawings.
