Thursday 1st August to Saturday 3rd August

Using the moving figure as inspiration, you will spend two mornings working directly from a dancer, as they warm up and perform various dances. You will be encouraged to experiment with a range of media and approaches to explore and express the dynamic form. In the afternoons and final day you will refine and develop your drawings, taking inspiration from the figure drawings of artists like Rodin and Degas. You don't need to be an expert at drawing the body to enjoy and gain from this interesting and unusual opportunity.
There will be a materials cost of £17 to cover the model (dancer) and some art materials.
Drawing from Dance ALICE WALKER trained in Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art and has been creating and exhibiting regularly ever since (including Oxford Artweeks). She has been teaching all kinds of art to adults and children for many years and finds it completely inspiring! Alice is a self confessed style and media butterfly who enjoys sharing and teaching ideas and approaches with anyone who will give art a go.
