An imaginative and playful workshop all about drawing people. In this workshop you’ll use a variety of prompts to dream up and draw a variety of interesting characters. We’ll draw people from real life, references and our imaginations using a variety of different materials and styles, like drawing, collage and ink. At the end of the workshop you’ll develop your favourite character by depicting them in a variety of different scenes and settings.
