Welcome to Drawing Matters. The last couple of months have been really busy, culminating in a 5-day drawing course in the beautiful mountains of Snowdonia, north Wales in the most glorious weather. There is one more drawing course for this year, which will be in London in August. It's fully booked but if you want to be among the first to hear about 2014 dates please email me to go on the mailing list.

Course Dates 2013If you've always wanted to learn to draw, Dr. Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain 5-day intensive course is a proven technique for teaching drawing - particularly to those people who swear they could never be taught to draw! This course is taught in the UK by Anna Black, certified and licensed by Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Inc.
Courses take place in central London (Little Venice), which are non-residential, and North Wales, near Bangor, (residential). The course lasts for 5 days and includes 35 hours of teaching and The Drawing Portfolio (RRP over £80).
The contents of the Drawing Portfolio were designed by Dr Betty Edwards and Brian Bomeisler. It includes all the materials you will need for the course, including drawing tools unique to Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. These unique tools were developed by Brian Bomeisler based on those used by the Old Masters. The Portfolio and its contents are yours to take home and keep.

Drawing the HeadOn the 5-day course we emphasize drawing portraits. We do this because catching a likeness requires the use of fine perceptual skills to distinguish what makes a person unique. The R-Mode (or right brain' also loves faces and finally, beginners often think drawing people is hard. When they discover they can do their confidence is increased. However, how do we go about drawing a head? Too often when we come to draw a head we forget that it is made up of a solid piece of bone unseen and yet informing everything that rests on it. To draw a convincing head it is important to let go of symbolic preconceptions of the head as a round shape and just draw what you see.
