About the workshop

From the enthusiastic beginner to the skilful hobbyist this drawing class has something for everyone!

Using pencil, pen, charcoal and limited watercolour you’ll explore drawing basics, before discovering the application of tone, texture and shape in order to leap into the world of composition and watercolour washes.

Cees will have you exploring landscapes, cityscapes and a still life, while using a wide variety of tools and techniques, helping you develop new skills and uncover your creative flair.

The small class size will allow your tutor to provide individualised feedback, specific to your skill level, ensuring everyone gets the most out of their creative weekend and leaves with a number of artworks they never thought possible!
