Our Basics Stream is not so Basic!

Diana Dwyer Explaining Charcoal Drawing Techniques
Diana Dwyer Explaining Charcoal Drawing Techniques

Drawing is a critical foundation skill for realistic painting and sculpture, and many artists return to our Basics stream to hone skills that they may have skimmed over in their early student years, as well as to refresh, practice and hone even further their drawing technique.

Join Diana Dwyer’s class on Fridays (there is still some space available) to learn and practice techniques on measurement, proportion, anatomy, tone(value) by drawing with charcoal plaster casts, still life and human and animal skeletons. Diana teaches individually, so this suits beginners through to very experienced artists.
