The ‘How to Draw’ series are fun, practical sessions written by our in-house artist Helen Palmer in response to the Covid crisis.

Helen firmly believes that with time, patience and practice, anyone can learn to draw.

To prove it, she has converted her popular ‘How to Draw’ workshops into online material for home education.

Part One will take you through the art of line drawing, based on the principle that the world is made up of shapes. How to Draw compressed file

Part Two looks at light and shadow, teaching a variety of shading techniques. How to Draw – Part Two (compressed)

The content is aimed at children and young people aged 8 – 14 years, but can equally be enjoyed by adults, or adapted for younger children.

All you need are pencils and paper. Why not give it a go?
