Why should drawing matter in the digital age we live in when most design can be achieved on a screen?

It is the wibblyness of a hand drawn line that makes a certain mark unique to an individual. This is as fundamental to identity as handwriting or the sound of a voice. All it needs is some practice and encouragement for it to flourish and be able to express the widest range of human emotions.

Whether you choose to specialise in Drawing, Painting or Mono Printing or even dabble in all three,  you will be supported in your chosen field and should reach goal of at least one finished piece of work at the end of each day. The combination of the inspiring grounds and studio at Shankill Castle and being led by Phoebe Cope are sure to get your creative juices flowing.

This workshop is ideal for all abilities. Phoebe works with all age groups and abilities including professional artists looking to hone their skills, students                                                     developing their portfolios and beginners looking for guidance and confidence.
