Begin to Draw in Charcoal with Catherine MacDiarmid

Drawing is a wonderful activity that can boost wellbeing, but it can be daunting to move from pencil into charcoal. In this class you will learn some fundamentals of charcoal drawing through a series of enjoyable exercises designed to develop technical skills, as well as translating what you see onto paper. A still life will be used as source material for this workshop.

Cumbria-based artist Catherine MacDiarmid has exhibited widely, including in the BP Portrait Award, and was a finalist in the Sky Portrait Artist of the Year 2019. She has 26 years’ experience teaching art courses.

Please bring with you:
*An A3/A2 sketchpad of cartridge paper
*Willow charcoal sticks in a variety of sizes
*Putty rubber

We have a Design shop at Rheged in case you are missing any materials.
