Rediscovering Pencils in Art with Margaret Jarvis

Although considered by many as simply grey and prosaic, the once humble pencil is re-inventing itself into a much more diverse offering than times past. On this course we will explore the considerable versatility of pencils, a medium which includes an increasingly exciting blend of colours and effects.

We will spend time learning how to use graphite, watercolour, Inktense as well as the vast range of coloured pencils. A wonderful opportunity to try this very versatile media There will be a large selection available for you to try.

This is an ideal course for beginners and improvers - especially those terrified of holding a brush and preferring something more biddable and predictable!
