This seven week course is ideal for absolute beginners who want to learn rudimentary drawing skills. It is also suitable for more experienced artists who wish to progress their skills.
Through a series of easy to understand step-by-step drawing exercises, you are encouraged to refine your skill of horizontal and vertical comparison (most people use this skill on a daily basis). This course contains a delicate blend of traditional methods handed down from the great masters combined with contemporary knowledge.
You need to devote a minimum of 2 to 4 hours a week in the first five weeks and approximately six hours per week for the final two weeks of the course.

On completion of this course you will receive a grade for your final project piece. The grade is awarded based upon the your ability to fulfil the grading criteria set out at the beginning of the course.
This course is the first in a series of six units that form a complete course in the fundamental principles of art for the beginner.
Every student who completes all six courses will be awarded a Certificate Of Completion. The Certificate will contain Cindy Wider's original signature along with your instructors signature and will be sent by post to students anywhere in the world free of charge.
The Certificate Of Completion will be accompanied by a list of the subjects studied by the student with the grade achieved for each area of study included alongside.
