Drawing Tutorial with Emily Carter: How To Draw an Elephant
May 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
About this event
After our very popular run of drawing tutorials, award-winning illustrator, designer and Kindred co-working member, Emily Carter is back twice a month via Zoom, to teach us more.
In this class, we’ll be learning how to draw the largest, most majestic land mammal on earth, the elephant.
Emily will guide us through the steps that she took to draw an elephant and together, we’ll try our hand at drawing our very own, with Emily on hand to answer ay questions you have along the way.
You will learn: How to use different mediums (pen and pencil), techniques for shading and mark-making, how to structure a drawing and how to create accurate symmetry.
All levels welcome – some drawing experience preferred, but not essential. Please come prepared with a pen, pencil and eraser plus paper (as thick as possible).
Tickets cost £10.25, book your place below.
Once you have purchased your ticket, we will email you the link to join the session the day before it will run.
What past participants thought:
“I had a great time joining our kindred family and being lead by Emily Carter to sketch. It been years since I allowed myself the space to sit and draw, and it was a joy to be in our virtual group, bringing us together, and me back to drawing. I’m looking forward to seeing you all again this Tuesday.” – Suzette Richards-Selano
“I haven’t picked up my pencils and sketch book in a long while, so when I saw that Kindred were working with Emily, I knew this was one worth getting involved in. There are plenty of online tutorials right now but getting time with Emily – who is a successful fashion designer and also a pretty big deal at Harrods – was a real treat. She has a very distinctive style, and it’s fascinating to see the detail and artistry that goes on behind the scenes in creating her designs.” – Eleanor O’Leary
“Doing a workshop with someone so successful in her field can make someone feel really intimidated but Emily was incredibly humble and kind, making sure that everyone is on the same page and taking time to give everyone feedback for their design! Not only have I learned something new, but I also made a friend! Can’t wait for the next tutorial! Well done Kindred for collaborating with the best!” – Athina Stamati
