This LivePlus™ online workshop is ideal for students who want to improve their skills and learn what can be achieved with a graphite pencil. You can either work-along during the session or watch the demonstration and have a go in your own time.
During this two-hour class, Jonathan will show you how to draw a swan with graphite (lead) pencil.
Working from the reference photo provided to all students ahead of the class, you will be shown how to trace down the outline and use various grades of pencil to achieve the subtle shades of the feathers of a white swan on white paper.
Specific skills you will learn at the workshop
- Tracing down
- Lifting out with the eraser

All Ardington ONLINE classes and talks are accompanied by their own online blackboard. Helpful and easy to use, they enable students and tutors to share resources, ideas and photos with each other – just as you would in a classroom environment.
Jonathan will offer personalised critique / feedback via the blackboard for any work uploaded by students within thirty days of the class ending. You will be sent the link to access your blackboard in the week before your class begins and will have access for at least sixty days after the class ends.
After the live session has finished on Zoom, we will share the link to view the recording on the blackboard. You can watch the recording as many times as you like for sixty days.
We suggest that you do not buy any specialist materials more than one week in advance as, occasionally, a class may be cancelled due to low enrolment.
