Held by Heather Lewis
Due to popular demand following demonstrations at local exhibitions and art clubs, Heather qualified in 2003 as a further education tutor. She now runs 12 week courses on drawing people and pets locally at Kinson Community Centre, Bournemouth, taking students from beginner, to intermediate and higher levels. Detailed instruction, handouts and demonstrations each week with plenty of individual tuition.
She also runs a drawing club called The Graphite Group, attended by previous students who wish to continue their drawing with friends. This has grown hugely over the years and now has over 62 members.
Heather feels passionately that anyone can learn to draw given the determination and willingness to practise. But don’t just take her word for it –
The ‘My Galleries’ page shows student work at different levels and is updated regularly as students progress through the courses. Much of the work you see at beginner level has been completed in a 10 week period by complete beginners. Others have drawn as a child and returned to it later in life.
It is a time consuming but totally absorbing occupation and so rewarding when you see your subject come to life in front of your eyes.
Come along and have a try – you would be amazed at what you can achieve given the right tuition.
