Discover and refine your drawing skills with acclaimed artist and teacher Leigh D Walker in a relaxed and encouraging environment. 

Firmly believing that drawing is the basis for all artistic practice, Leigh is a passionate advocate of teaching solid foundational skills. 

We will explore a variety of drawing techniques and materials in this 10-week course to introduce students to different ways of seeing, thinking and drawing. How to sketch form, understanding tonal variations, quality of line, shading and subtractive drawing are just a few of the techniques we will be covering.

Our afternoons will be fun and relaxed, with plenty of room to experiment, explore, and get into the real nitty-gritty of drawing.

This course will focus on object, still life, figure and portrait drawing and is suitable for all levels of experience: from absolute beginner to advanced.

There will be plenty of one-on-one tuition and both new and returning students are welcome.
