Char with Charcoal

An online charcoal drawing course with Nichola Martin.

As an artist I have always worked with charcoal.  Whether using it for quick sketches or more dramatic finished drawings I have always found charcoal an extremely relaxing and therapeutic medium to use.  I began seriously using charcoal in my final year at University with my whole Degree Show consisting of large scale charcoal drawings.  The main reason I chose this medium is because of its versatility.  It was extremely quick to work with and, unlike oil painting which requires time to dry, allowed me much more studio time. 

Have you always wanted to learn to draw?

This ‘Char with Charcoal’ course is a fun introduction to drawing with charcoal. Together, through daily video tutorials and step by step diagrams, we will explore the use and the effect of charcoal through observational drawing and learning about composition, measuring, tonal values, tricks of the trade and much more. There will be an online private 'support forum' for each student where I will be available to offer encouragement and advice to help you with your drawings.  All you need to do is make the time, even ten minutes a day, to sit down with your charcoal (and a mug of char) and practice. The beauty of this ‘Char with Charcoal’ course is the availability and convenience for YOU to do in a time that suits YOUR lifestyle.  It's never too late to learn how to draw and with this course you can learn how to draw in the comfort of your own home.  With these drawing tutorials, nicholamartinfineart.com brings out the artist in everyone!
