Young Artists Online: Drawing Club New Cumnock Aged 10 - 14
Our weekly online Drawing Club is free for 10-14 year old students based in East Ayrshire who have a passion for drawing and a desire to improve their skills. The weekly class will lead students through a range of observational drawing exercises and introduce a broad range of historic and contemporary artists. Students will be encouraged to make regular use of a sketchbook and build up a high-quality collection of drawings. Drawing in this way encourages close concentration and helps students to develop the ability and confidence to make a personal response to the world.
The Drawing Club is led by professional artist Steven Walker, who is alumni of our postgraduate programme, The Drawing Year, experienced in teaching children and based in Ayrshire.
Students will draw from clothed models, still life set-ups and the outdoor environment available to them in a secure and fun online studio. The course will take inspiration from Scottish works of art and collections throughout the country. A list of suggested materials will be provided in advance of the course.
Pre-COVID 19 this Drawing Club was based in New Cumnock Town Hall in the heart of New Cumnock, and we hope for a return to this dedicated creative space from September 2021.
