During an enjoyable four hour session with the Seaview Art Group some beautiful drawings were created using willow charcoal, compressed charcoal and chalk.

We used a range of papers including Bockingford, Ingres, pastel paper and sugar paper. The still life task created a chance to learn about ellipses and proportions, but the main goal was sharpening observation skills.
For many of the participants this was an opportunity to use new materials and challenge themselves. At the end of the day everyone felt pleased and excited with their creations. Here are some of the drawings created that day. Many thanks to the Artists for allowing their work to be shown:
