Museum Drawing is a practical course that will help you to enjoy and develop more sophisticated artistic skills and a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Ashmolean museum’s wide-ranging collection.
This course focuses on the basics of how to accurately record, proportion, and shape, mark-making, through the exploration of different drawing materials and tonal techniques that will give your drawings form. You will have the opportunities to draw from artworks first-hand in the museum as well as developing your own creative responses to objects, and resources as the sessions will take place in the museum itself. Each week the tutor will take you through a specific planned task, demonstrating and supporting you, one to one. You will sketch and develop your drawings using different tools or media in any way that you choose. In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.
