Friday Afternoon Drawing Club – 3rd May


Out of stock

At the Friday Afternoon Drawing Club, we look at drawing, in particular drawing with charcoal. There will be a live model and artists will work from a different pose each week.

Why charcoal, you might ask? Charcoal drawing offers painters a unique opportunity to enhance their skills and expand their artistic repertoire. Beyond the traditional brush and paint, charcoal provides a tactile and expressive medium that encourages experimentation, spontaneity, and a deeper understanding of light, shadow, and form. Embracing charcoal drawing as a complementary skill not only enhances technical proficiency but also fosters creative growth and versatility, empowering painters to express themselves with greater nuance and depth.

Moreover, engaging in creative pursuits like charcoal drawing isn’t just about honing technical skills; it’s about nurturing the mind and spirit. This meditative quality of art-making promotes mindfulness and relaxation, offering a much-needed respite from the stresses of everyday life.
