Learn to draw in the unique setting of Cogges

Always wanted to draw? Don’t know how to get started? Come and learn the basics of drawing in the unique setting of Cogges Manor Farm.  This is a six week course designed to build confidence in a friendly and encouraging environment.

  • Week 1: Pencil mark-making, drawing basic cubes and shapes.
  • Week 2: Simple still-life with cups/jars from the kitchen and pantry.
  • Week 3: Negative shapes. Looking at the shapes between the solid objects helps place everything correctly in your drawing.
  • Week 4: The basics of perspective using photos of the barns and house.
  • Week 5: an introduction to portrait drawing, using a gridded photograph.
  • Week 6: Embracing colour with chalk pastels. Colourful still life with flowers.

This course will run every Thursday from 8th September to 20th October from 10am - midday (excluding 22nd September). For any questions about this series of workshops please email Laura on Learning@cogges.org.uk.
