Drawing Realistically

Workshop on drawing realistically, with a focus on hands

This workshop will help you master the art of drawing hands. We will look at the bones of the hands, the tendons and muscles, and how to draw them clenched, stretched and many other poses, young hands and old hands. 


We will be going through some exercises to help train your hand eye co-ordination, and look at how tonal values, contrast, edges and shadows all combine to give you a great result.


Lisa will provide handouts and some subjects to draw to cater for all levels, from beginner to advanced.


Participants have the opportunity to exhibit in our end of year diversARTy exhibition at Eltham Library Gallery to celebrate their achievements with friends and family.

This course is open to people aged 18 years and over. 






This course is held at our Eltham centre – 739 Main Road.


What to bring


  • A4 or A3 drawing pad
  • 6B graphite pencil
  • A kneadable eraser
