I’ve begun teaching at the Playful Pencil in Oak Bay and it’s been great.

We’re learning about portraits – and at the same time, learning about drawing. This class is for those just starting out and learning what a pencil can do. We’ve just finished our first set of four classes. We’ve studied the eyes, nose and mouth and we’ve also done a number of warm up and value exercises. Each lesson starts with a warm up and an exercise and then we go on to a more detailed study of some part of the face. I provide examples of work to show how different artists find different solutions. All of my students signed up for the next set of classes, so I must be doing something right! If you’re interested in joining us, check out the Playful Pencil's website here.  Even though the upcoming class is “part 2”, it’s still appropriate for absolute beginners.
