Northern Realist offers a range of courses in realist drawing based on classical principles. Check the categories below to find the course and format which suits you best. The approach is consistent across all the courses so what you learn in one will benefit you on others. The groups are always small enough for you to work at your own level so over multiple courses you can progress, each time pushing your own skills within a mixed ability group.
You can work in a variety of media, if you’re just starting out it’s recommended to push your drawing skills, usually in charcoal. This means you can learn the essential principles without the added complication of using paint. As you develop you’ll be introduced to paint, first in monochrome and then full colour.
