Online Short Course

4 Weeks £35.50
Learn to draw and paint Big Cats (tiger, lion, jaguar, leopard, snow leopard and cheetah). There will be a mix of drawing activities leading towards longer studies. We will look at anatomy, gesture drawing, movement, fur textures, colour and patterns, working from beautiful reference photos and videos provided in an online folder and viewable on screen. This will be a fun weekly class with the chance to explore different media and techniques, working in pencil, charcoal, ink and watercolour, with demonstrations and tuition from artist and tutor Bethany Milam. At the end of each session at 4pm there will be an optional extra 15mins for one-to-one feedback to be given. Suitable for beginners.

These Live lessons will be held on zoom, and sessions will be recorded and made available to participants to watch back. You will receive emails each week with materials lists, you will also have access to an online file containing lesson resources, reference images, materials lists and extra topic information. Feedback can be given during lesson time. You will have access to a closed Facebook group to interact with other students.
