Today you will be attempting to draw some still life. This could be a sketch of any item from around your house. What you choose to sketch is up to you. Perhaps start with something simple, before moving on to something more challenging.

I have attached a video to help give you some guidance and inspiration. You do not need all of the equipment that the artist featured uses. A simple pencil, some paper and plenty of patience is all that is required.


Remember to send in photos or scans of work and I will add them to the class gallery.
