Art Classes & Workshops

Start Time: 10.00am

Book Place

This course is open to all abilities. Previous life drawing experience is not essential although beginners should ideally have done a little general drawing previously. Returners and those with experience will be encouraged and supported in deepening their own practice and in experimenting with new approaches.

The course combines traditional observational methods with exciting and innovative exercises designed to help you see and interpret the figure in new ways. A different life model will pose each day and there will be a good balance of long and short poses. You will be working from an easel either standing or sitting.

CORE SKILLS: 
  • Broad range of approaches to introduce different ways of observation.
  • Explore proportion, plotting, angles and shape.
  • Learn how to structure your drawing.
  • Depicting gesture and expressive mark making.
  • Drawing from standing, seated and reclining poses.
  • Develop your own personal response to the figure.
MATERIALS LIST: 

A range of pencils HB, B, 2B, 4B, 6B, sharpener, box of mixed size willow charcoal sticks, putty rubber or general eraser, 30cm ruler, lots of A2 cartridge and/or coloured paper, minimum of 2 coloured pencils, approx 2 sheets of A3 tracing paper, masking tape, bulldog clips, 4 plus sheets of mid toned paper (can be brown parcel paper), white and dark conte or pastel pencil, scissors and mono-zero eraser.
