Contour Drawing

Contour Drawing

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Contour Drawings are line drawings that create the illusion of three dimensional form on a flat surface. This is a very pleasurable and tactile way of drawing which depends on the senses of sight and touch. Improve your drawing skills by refining these senses and in turn developing your observational skills.

There will be exercises and demonstrations throughout the day. The tutor will bring a folio of her own drawings and art books to illustrate a wide range of contour drawing styles.

Agenda

• How to synchronize the eye and hand whilst drawing.
• Introduction to blind contour drawing- concentrating on the edges of a 3D form.
• How to develop complete concentration whilst drawing your subject.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the day you will have:
• Practical experience with a variety of ways to approach contour drawing.
• Developed confidence to draw from the visible world.
• Insights into the way artists see and draw their subjects.
• A taste of hand-eye co-ordination.
