Monday 27th July to Thursday 31th July

For centuries, life-drawing has been an essential artist's tool for understanding the visual language of the body. This course will allow students to hone their life-drawing skills through traditional and more experimental methods. Mornings will be spent on tutor-led exercises, using ourselves as models, allowing students to explore and expand their knowledge of drawing, anatomy, colour space and the figurative visual language. Afternoon sessions will allow students to draw from a life model, working at their own level. These tutored sessions will comprise a series of both shorter and longer poses. Students must be aged 16 or over to enrol.
There will be a materials cost of £20 per student to cover the cost of the model for four afternoons. Students who wish to work from an easel will need to supply their own but it is not essential for the course.
