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 a weekend, you will learn and be able to practice new techniques to develop your drawing skills.
