I am doing a course this year that is designed for people like me. Middle-aged arty/crafty types who need some inspiration. It is on school hours Thursday and Fridays with an open studio morning on Tuesdays.
The course has 3 basic components:
- Life drawing (yikes it’s hard!)
- Adobe suite (Photoshop and Illustrator – great to know for any communications job right?)
- Studio (drawing, painting and printing = fun, fun, fun)
I have never done any of this stuff before. And I am loving it. Like really truly super loving it. Even though I nearly cry every week in life drawing (you’ll see why when I get the courage up to share my pretty crap drawings).
So, that’s what I’m doing. And here’s the very first thing I did there … ink drawing, and white pencil on black paper.
How exciting! Love the feathers, I remember buying a jar of indian ink when I was at school, and playing around with caligraphy pens. Must dig out my old sketchbooks- I used to draw horses and my cat! Enjoy the course, can’t wait to see how it goes!!!
