Group Leader: Patricia Davison
Thank you all for showing an enthusiastic interest in the new Drawing Group.
Taking account of the great number of people who replied, this group will now not be on zoom. Instead a drawing activity will be made available to everyone each month containing details, resources required and instructions.
This is not a teaching or demonstration group but hopefully a creative experience. The principle aims are :-
1. To provide an additional activity for us at home during the next few months.
2. To give some ideas for using graphite pencils, coloured pencils and pens.
3. To develop, expand and initiate own drawing exercises.
4. To share ideas with other like minded individuals.
In order to include everyone and to make it flexible, I will always use the same format for each month’s activity.

These are the Activities scheduled so far:
ACTIVITY 1 - An abstract design with leaves
ACTIVITY 2 -Shading - still using organic leaf forms
ACTIVITY 3 - Drawing a Winter tree without taking the pencil off the paper.
ACTIVITY 4 - Drawing different types of trees using different shading techniques.
ACTIVITY 5 - Drawing different textures- very useful for walls, brickwork, buildings and still life.
ACTIVITY 6 - A Still Life - shading and texture required here but precise and correct drawing of the forms do not matter. In fact the more ‘Picasso like’ the better.
