Line, Tone and Proportion!

Know a little bit about drawing? This is the next step to develop your drawing skills

Preferably you will have a bit of experience of drawing - from one of our courses, school or a natural skill.  You’ll spend the day sketching the wonderful statues in the V&A collection - reinforcing and building on the basic principles of drawing.

Our friendly and experienced tutors will help you develop your skills and build confidence with some more challenging subjects and techniques - to play with quality of line, tone and proportion.  We’ll explore a wider range of materials and draw on coloured paper - creating some works of art to take home and be proud of.

But it’s not all work, work, work, as this is a Frui day course after all! We’ll also enjoy a lovely lunch break (either your own packed lunch or bought from the cafe) and have a truly fun, inspiring and sociable day together consisting of beautiful surroundings and jargon-free, down to earth tuition.

What should you bring?

All the basic drawing materials are provided, however if you want to bring your own please feel free. Some people might want to bring a sketch pad, otherwise lose sheets are provided by the tutors. Otherwise just bring yourselves, and a big dollop of creativity. 

Please note: It can get cold in the gallery, so please wrap up warm. 

Also, although we accept minors if they are being accompanied by an adult at all times, we have found that 6 hours often proves a bit too long for them to remain focused, so we advise this particular course is best suited to adults. 

A little about Frui's approach to teaching...

Frui adopts a positive teaching approach, meaning our encouraging and supportive tutors focus on what you are doing right, not wrong. Not only are our tutors all practicing artists, they are also experienced tutors who will encourage you to develop your own artistic voice and help to draw out what is individual about your work.
