Life Drawing, Evening Classes - dot-art at the Bluecoat
Tuesdays 6.45pm-9.30pm starting 12th June 2012 (£160 for 10 sessions).
Roy Munday leads a 10 week programme of evening lessons developing your skills in life drawing, including accurate measuring, colour and drawing and painting techniques.
(Suitable for both newcomers / beginners and those continuing from previous courses, as the tutor will tailor the material to individual participants.)
The course is aimed at adults of any age, both beginners and the more advanced, who want to work directly from both the nude and clothed model. Though the course is for ten weeks, it’s intended that students will want to continue for further weeks. Students will progress at their own pace in a friendly, relaxed and flexible class. The course will start with the basics of drawing the whole figure to achieve technical accuracy by learning how to measure. Once the student has learned the basic drawing skills, they can, through the guidance of the tutor, move on to using a medium of their choice: watercolour, acrylics etc. Students will be encouraged to experiment with different styles, such as impressionistic and abstract, so that they can acquire their own individual style. Students will also be encouraged to work and research in between teaching sessions, but this isn’t obligatory. At the end of the first ten weeks, it’s intended that students will have gained both competence and confidence to want to continue the class for a further ten weeks.
Roy is an experienced trainer and artist, who has been teaching life drawing for many years.
