About the Course

Take your drawing skills to the next level! Learn how to bring life and soul into your pieces, whether it be a tiny bumble bee or the king of the jungle! Find out how to use charcoal effectively at Arley Studios, based in the rolling hills of the Worcestershire countryside, right next to the River Severn.

I love charcoal, for its simplicity ... the ability to add and remove it at will and to bring drama to a piece. The course is suitable for both beginners and improvers alike and is delivered in a warm, friendly at atmosphere and at a steady pace.

All art materials will be provided to ensure that the best quality supplies are being used. These courses have always proved very popular and often sell out, so book as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.

Refreshments, lunch, parking and free Wi-fi are all offered as standard on this package.
