Kew has a new day course on an introduction to drawing trees, which covers composition, scale, experimentation, and texture. After an outdoor ice-breaker exercise using sketchbooks/paper on board, the morning continues with composition studies using viewfinders. This focuses on how the structure of branches and negative space can bring balance to a composition. The day also includes sessions on experimental drawing and working with a range of materials to explore how mark-making and texture can help reflect the organic nature of trees. The tutor is Stuart Simler who has exhibited internationally. To book, please email email@example.com with a contact telephone number, or call 020 8332 5626.
