Time & Dates

Saturday 8th June


The workshop will take place in the purpose made teaching space at Crafty Studio, Glasnevin

  • At the start of the session, you’ll experience a drawing demo outlining the steps you can take to build the foundation of your drawing, as well as the thought process behind each mark made.
  • Pierce’s drawing style revolves around intuition and trusting one’s eyes; there’ll be no strict grids or measuring tools. Every drawing is an exercise in itself, so there’s no pressure to make it “perfect.”
  • Once students start their own drawings, your tutor will circulate to each person individually, working to assist you at your own speed and level.
  • Through this workshop, Pierce hopes to teach students to get a feel for the medium (the artistic materials or tools you’ll be using), the ability to diagnose and fix mistakes, and how to simplify complex forms, giving you the confidence to tackle any subject.
