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
