This season’s Art Club Senior invites participants to learn drawing techniques with a professional artist

Join artist Nadia Rice for an introduction to drawing techniques in this 6 week course that takes its inspiration from current exhibition ‘Fashion Show: Clothing, art and activism’.

The course provides an insight into different drawing materials and will invite participants to try their hand at charcoal, pastels, graphite and ink. Using artworks within the current exhibition, we’ll look at space, line, colour, light and shade, and texture. The course is suitable for beginners or those with previous experience who would like to develop their skills.

Learn drawing and mindfulness techniques from a professional artist.

This Autumn the Glucksman team are inviting you to join artist Cassandra Eustace for a drawing course that focuses on playful and intuitive activities to encourage mindfulness and relaxation. Cassandra will guide participants through a series of sensory exercises uniquely designed to focus on the experience of drawing for wellbeing not drawing for approval or known outcome. Cassandra is a visual artist and educator based in the Backwater Artists Group, Cork. She has been leading individuals and groups through mindfulness drawing exercises with her unique meditative approach for a number of years. This is a relaxing way of drawing without judgment, suiting all levels of drawing interest and ability.
