Venue: The Courthouse
All materials and equipment are provided, but do feel free to bring along a sketchbook or notebook or your own set of pencils.

Explore beautiful still life compositions and landscapes, inspired by autumn, winter, spring and summer,  in this course perfect for beginners.

Learn how to capture the movement of snow flurries across the Dales and the crisp autumn leaves as they fall from trees.

Use a variety of shading techniques, as well as tone and composition to explore drawing through different mediums. Throughout this four week course we will explore each season, through still life observations, printed resources and photos of seasonal settings.
