Introduction to Drawing

Rachel Cohen
£95

Drawing from observation is central to Rachel’s artistic practice and she will introduce you to this way of working. You will be guided through a number of different strategies used by artists for observational drawing. Rachel will support you in creating your own studies of objects in the studio, looking at composition, line, tone, proportion and perspective. You will also take part in playful, experimental exercises which will help you to find out about materials and enjoy drawing as a process in itself. Have fun learning together in a small group and then practice the exercises at home in your own time.

Suitable for all levels including beginners.
All images are students’ own work.

White Room

Some materials will be provided, please bring the following to the first session:

  • 2b and 6b pencil
  • Sharpener
  • Rubber
  • A roll of masking tape

Rachel studied Art History (BA) at Sussex University and Fine Art (PG Dip) at Brighton. She has an MA in museum and gallery education from the Institute of Education, London. She learned printmaking at a private college in Treviso, Italy and at Kensington and Chelsea Institute in London. Rachel works with wide range of techniques and materials. She makes paintings, drawings and sculptures, site-specific installations and performances. Recent projects include residencies in Ireland, Spain, Brazil, Portugal and Denmark, solo exhibitions at Regency Town House and Newhaven Fort and group shows in Brighton, London and Eastbourne.
