If you have an interest in Industrial Heritage then join artist Mick Smith for a 6 week course that develops observational skills through the still life studies of industrial machines and objects. Suitable for all levels, we will learn basic and more advanced drawing techniques but also have some fun and break the rules allowing personal styles to shine.

The result can be as traditional or as contemporary as you choose. Over these six sessions you will be using pencil, charcoal and pastel or bring your own preferred medium to create still life drawings to take home.

Skill Level: Designed for all levels of drawing experience.

Recommended to wear an apron or old clothes.
