Will you join us at Raystede on Sunday 19th January for a special art workshop? The workshop will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be run by local artist, Rhys Ganderton. Rhys works in coloured pencils and draws realistic portraits of pets and animals. He is looking forward to running this workshop for Raystede as it will give him the chance to express his love of our furry friends and his love of drawing. He's previously taught drawing at Brighton college, and has been an illustrator and painter.
The session will last for three hours. In the first part of the workshop there will be a quick introduction explaining the aims of the session, materials and you will get to see Rhys' own work.
You will then work on various drawing techniques focusing on drawing fur and hair, eyes and ears. The “outlines” of the shapes will be provided by Rhys and you will concentrate on creating the forms with colour.
