Sharing her passions for Biro drawing and wildlife, Jane's workshops include a brief discussion about featured animals, followed by a practical Biro drawing session. Workshops focus on the fact that drawing is a skill we all possess and can be a great source of self-expression and escapism! Individual tutoring, Biro drawing tips and advice are given by Jane throughout the workshop, as well as encouraging self-confidence to continue drawing. Her workshops offer an informal and enjoyable atmosphere for all ages, in the inspirational surroundings of Thought Foundation gallery.
