Scared of the Paper: Drawing for the Terrified



Does a blank piece of paper terrify you when you just want to draw? Do you want to create but don’t know where to start? Do you want to feel more confident and improve your drawing? If so, this is the class and the tutor for you! Scared of the Paper is a different kind of drawing class, focussed on finding the joy in drawing.

Throughout the day you will work on a variety of exercises and techniques in mixed media to help build your belief in yourself. You will be shown how to draw using traditional skills and visual techniques to help you conquer the fundamentals of drawing. You will be guided and encouraged to embrace and develop your own style using techniques such as blind drawing and automatic drawing, as pioneered by the Surrealists. There will be opportunities to reflect and discuss your work with other students in a supportive atmosphere.

By the end of the day you will have made many drawings working towards a final piece using everything you have learned.

This workshop is suitable for anyone with an interest in making art. From beginners to professionals seeking to get back into drawing you can benefit from Jen’s vast knowledge and experience, in a relaxed and inspiring environment.
