This term will be 5 weeks and have a life model each week, model fees incl in course cost.
Figure drawing is the traditional cornerstone of art training and the human body offers every challenge one could require—line and tone, perspective and composition. It is immensely satisfying to capture the human form on paper and this course will show you how. We will break the body down into simple shapes to understand body types and foreshortening;drawing forms coming towards you or moving away from you. We will explore gestural drawing with short timed sketches moving towards more relaxed lengthy poses. Looking at portraiture and the structure of the human face we will draw self portraits and learn how to form and shape the face. This class is suited to all levels and will introduce you to the fun of drawing in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Throughout the year we will run different themes, exploring Drawing from basic mark making, to drawing with colour and mixed media, Drawing the nude, portraits and more. All the courses are 5 weeks and suited to beginners and each new theme helps to build your art technique and allow you to continue practising throughout the year.
