The Drawing Gym
Taking the museum and its permanent collection as a starting point, this course introduces a range of drawing techniques for visualising and communicating your ideas. Over three weeks you will learn how to draw isometric projections, scale elevations, diagrams and more.
The first session will be about the language of sketching: crating, estimating and using tracing paper over grids to make sketches.
The second session will introduce compelling techniques for thinking up and illustrating ideas using 2D and 3D diagrams.
In the third session you will generate ideas based on first hand observations of the museum.
This course aims to boost your drawing confidence and is open to all levels. In addition to the sessions, a series of exercise sheets will be made available as a part of the course.
