Drawing Gymnasium - Winter 2014

© Agnese Sanvito


The Drawing Gymnasium is a four evening freehand drawing course to motivates people to communicate effectively and provides a broad set of skills for expressing ideas in the design process.

Run with D R A W I N G A T W O R K, the course is specifically aimed at practicing engineers but students, architects, manufacturers, set designers and others keen to improve their drawing skills have all benefitted from the course. Individuals are encouraged to progress at a comfortable pace in a stimulating and supportive atmosphere.

Emphasis lies in communication rather than virtuoso drawing performances, and we work with a range of exercises from semi-formal (where line weight is critical), to 'conversational sketches' for rapid idea generation. Each attendee works from the Dr@w teaching sketchbook to rapidly learn techniques including axonometric, 1 and 2 point perspective, and section.

The course will be run on four consecutive weeks in February 2014 as follows:

Monday 3 February
Monday 10 February
Monday 17 February
Monday 24 February

All workshops run from 6.30pm to 8:30pm and take place at The Building Centre. Please bring with you drawing pens – one thick 0.6 and one thin 0.1. All other materials will be provided.

"Isometric Drawing was very useful for sharing structural details. I will use this form of drawing the most in my work" G.Walker
