Six Week Course – Creative Autonomy: the principles and process of drawing

£199.00

Drawing consists in conception, not production. This course is designed to unlock your artistic potential by empowering you to use drawing to explore and affirm your conception of the world and releasing you from self-imposed restraint. You will learn to use drawing as a mechanism of building positive self-affirmation by utilising principles which have generated creative freedom and autonomy for the greatest artists of history.

This is a Six-Week course delivered live on Zoom with Jon Long, Founder of The Renaissance Workshop

Testimonial:

“I have been to a good number of different drawing classes over many years each with their own methods. It was only when I started drawing in Jon’s class that I got a truly workable approach and thought process and one that is truly coherent from the start to the finish of a drawing. I am now able to immediately start a drawing of any pose or object in a confident manner knowing how to approach and build the structures. If only I could have met Jon in the beginning but so glad I have now. Jon has studied the great techniques of various renaissance masters and assimilated an effective continuation of the methods that taught and were practiced by the great masters including Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and many others.”
