Every Monday 16th September – 14th October, 16.30 – 18.00

This five week course will encourage you to develop your drawing skills and you will learn how to tell your stories through drawing and illustration. We will explore and experiment with a wide variety of styles and learn how to draw using a mix of materials. We will work in the studio each Monday at Slanchogled as well as spending time drawing in coffee shops and if the weather holds up parks too.

Week One. Monday 16th September

We will meet at Tower 47 on Chalk Farm road for a hot chocolate and a sketch. Here we will observe and draw the objects, people and space around us.

Week Two. Monday 23rd September

You will be encouraged to let your imagination and sense of humour run wild as you learn how to transform ordinary objects in to quirky characters through a variety of drawing games and exercises. We will also spend time looking at an eclectic mix of work by professional illustrators this can inform and inspire your own work.

Week Three. Monday 30th September

Developing on last weeks work we will work together to develop a number of quirky illustrated characters. We will draw and build them together in the workshop at Slanchogled.

Week Four. Monday 7th October

This week we will meet on Primrose hill. Here we will take our illustrated characters out in to the real world. We will assemble them in the most peculiar of places and photograph them along the way.

Week Five. Monday 14th October

This week we will reflect upon our photographs and use them to inform our creative writing as we arrange them and tell weird and wonderful illustrated tale in our own stylish illustration books.
