Art Workshops

A range of Art Workshops are held at the Alfred East Art Gallery. Whether you are a beginner or a professional, there is something for everyone.

Drawing Workshop with Jamie Boots

Subject: Ring Tailed Lemur

Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th February

Graphite pencil can be used to produce so much more than just a sketch. Using a pencil blunt or sharp, pressing lightly or hard and using a variety of tones, learn how to create the effect of fur and feathers, the texture of skin and the glassy look of an eye.

With the expert tuition from Jamie over the course of the weekend, you will learn and be able to practice new techniques to develop your drawing skills.
