Entry criteria

This course is suitable for all, including non-sketchers, rusty practitioners, and those who sketch frequently but want to make drawings of a higher standard, possibly for use in presentations. Participants will be sent a small set of course sheets prior to starting the course, which will enable you to practise sketching before you attend. You will leave with another set to help you keep practising.
