Drawing for Beginners :: with Guest Presenter Ro Williams

This week we were delighted to host guest presenter, Ro Williams, who is an artist based in Leicestershire.

Ro creates her own work for exhibitions and commissions and helps people create their own art through arts for health activities.  

Ro joined us for an hour to share and demonstrate her drawing tips and tricks for beginners.  During the session Ro showed how to create a simple eight page sketchbook our of a single sheet of paper, discussed different types of pencils and erasers, and shared three confidence building pencil and paper activities as an inspiration to get started.  Below is an edited version of the session which included book recommendations for anyone wanting to learn to draw:
