What you'll do

Even if you’ve never drawn before this one-day course will be an excellent introduction to still life drawing in North London with other local people.
Suitable for complete beginners and those with some experience, we’ll cover all necessary aspects and guide you step by step and show you how to accomplish better drawings.

Learn how to measure and draw what you see.
Learn to simplify complex shapes. Transform 3D to 2D.
We will cover composition, perspective, scale, texture, tone, shade, line and approach - all in a straightforward, simple way to help you develop your work and build confidence.
We'll start with pencil, charcoal and chalk and build until you are working with coloured pastels - a great medium that allows painterly qualities within a drawing framework - enabling full colour representation in your work and a rich form of expression.
In four hours you will get started and guided through a sure-safe method with plenty of demonstrations and one-to-one tuition from Professional Tutor, Edward Wills.

I run a local arts initiative called Tottenham Art Classes along with my husband Tom, where we organise art classes/courses in Tottenham, North London. Our sessions attract local people living in and around the area to get together and do something creative closer to home. We have been running our classes/courses for over 5 years which has brought people together to be part of the growing creative community in this part of London. We work with professional artists to deliver our longer courses including experienced artist Edward Wills. Edward studied at Winchester, The Byam Shaw School of Art (Painting Diploma) and Reading University (Fine Art). He has been a professional artist for the last 30 years with work in private collections worldwide including the Royal Collection. He has exhibited at The Mall Galleries and The Royal Academy.
