Do you struggle to get started?  Need some ways of getting warmed up and creating?  This workshop will introduce you to a range of quick and spontaneous ways of drawing, from mark-making to techniques for warming up your drawing arm, printmaking, and mixed media.   You will fill a concertina sketchbook (provided as part of the course) and by the end of the workshop, you will have created a range of developments and ideas.   The course is more about experimentation and finding ways to get ideas on paper without the pressure of perfection.  You may find this workshop a challenge if you are hoping to leave with fully resolved artworks.   The weekend will provide you with opportunities for further development to create your own visual language and a record in your sketchbook which you can refer back to again and again.
