Presented by Visual Artist Nyree-Jane Taylor
This will be a combination of an introduction to drawing and charcoal through the figure and still life. Great for beginners and drawers wanting to practice their skills base with direction.
Come through the door and discover how uplifting and inspiring charcoal drawing can be. Challenge your preconceived ideas about what it means to be creative as you are encouraged to explore your own self-expression through charcoal drawings.
Hosted in the beautiful sun-lit Gardiner Street Arts Collective Gallery, Visual Artist Nyree Taylor will teach you her approach to one of her favourite mediums, Charcoal drawing in a mindful, relaxed and fun atmosphere.
This comprehensive full day class includes lessons on charcoal drawing, a charcoal drawing kit, baguettes and grazing platter for lunch by Jeanne d Moore and a still life model to draw.
Throughout the full day workshop you will learn all essential aspects of charcoal drawing, from art material to techniques involved in drawing. The day will be slow and mindful and will challenge your preconceived ideas of what drawing is. A model will be present in the morning session, guided by Nyree you’ll learn to see and draw, followed in the afternoon by a long drawing with a still life.
Introduction to Charcoal and Drawing is not only an opportunity to learn how to master this ancient medium, it is also an invitation for you to experience a different way of slowing down and exploring self-expression plus you’ll also take home your own charcoal drawing kit for future creations.
There will be a maximum of 15 guests only.

“My happiness in a day like this is watching people become completely engrossed in drawing. Mindfulness is the key and letting go of your fear.
Learning to really see what’s in front of you, and the discovery of how uplifting and challenging drawing can be” – Nyree
