Architectural Inspirations: Drawing

Experimenting with pencil, pen and paint, and using the RIBA's world-class collection of photographs and drawings for inspiration. You will explore different themes and ideas in architecture by developing your skills in working at different scales, practising basic perspective and capturing the characteristics of a place or building. In a small online group lead by artist Wilson Yau you will learn more about architecture and drawing and create your own artworks during this interactive, friendly workshop.

Suitable for beginners wanting to explore different ways of drawing using architecture, and for experienced artists wanting to refresh their practice.
