Over the eight week course you will gain confidence in your drawing ability as you learn to master the basics of tone, texture, perspective and composition.

This is a practical and engaging class, perfect for enabling you to disconnect from everyday stresses and find a sense of achievement and fulfillment in the drawing process.

I am located within the Out of the Blue Drill Hall - an arts venue which accommodates a range of artists, designers and charities and hosts exhibitions, art fairs and other creative events.
PLEASE NOTE: The City Workshop studio is located on the second floor and unfortunately there is no lift access.
Tamar’s Drawing For Beginners classes are fantastic - I’d recommend to anyone, regardless of their skills or perception of their own ability. Great atmosphere, Tamar couldn’t be more supportive and encouraging, and the weekly sessions have just the right balance between learning and being able to experiment. Thanks for the encouragement to keep going!
I took part in the 'Drawing for Beginners' course and could not recommend the course, and Tamar as a teacher, enough. Tamar is such a fantastic teacher, so encouraging and knowledgeable and always more than happy to answer any questions along the way. Now I'm no longer hesitant or nervous when it comes to drawing and have had a great time learning and experimenting throughout the course, and continue to do so even after it's finished.
I had no idea how much of a positive experience this class would bring me. The atmosphere was calm and Tamar was able to give me self confidence to give things a go as this was very much out with my comfort zone. I can’t believe how much I have learned and how it has helped me to slow down a bit and take a look at what is going on round about me.
I really enjoyed the drawing for beginners class. I went in with the popular misconception that I couldn't draw, and came out with lots more confidence, ideas and a desire to keep at it! Can't wait for the next course .
Great experience of freeing up ourselves to creativity. Step by step you see that you can do it. Tamar is great teacher, supportive, objective and always next to you to motivate and direct you to the next level and progression. I strongly recommend the courses, it's an oasis of self-indulgence.
What a lovely experience all round. Relaxed, calm and sociable drawing with great teaching and a brilliant sound track. I really got into the 'zone' and surprised myself by developing a love for drawing.
