Event description

Description

If you've ever fancied trying your hand at Life Drawing this 6 week course offers an exploration into the various techniques and methods used to depict the human figure. The classes will be relaxed and friendly and although the course is aimed at beginners all levels are welcome to come along!


What will you do?

You will work with a life model

Each of the 6 sessions will focus on a different subject, for example: quick gestural drawings, chiaroscuro (the study of light and dark tonal values), measured drawing or negative space.

  • You’ll use different drawing materials, including pencil, charcoal, graphite and chalk

  • You’ll learn to draw from observation, from a range of short and long, model poses

  • You’ll gain an understanding of the materials you use

  • You’ll use measuring to improve the proportion of your drawings

  • You’ll learn to create effective compositions

What will you make?

You’ll produce line drawings and tonal drawings. In some sessions you might do lots of quick drawings and in others you may produce just one or two longer drawings

Who is this course for?

The course is suitable for complete beginners or those with some experience who wish to hone their skills. No previous knowledge is required

What do you need to bring?

Bring a sketch book (at least A3 size) and a selection of drawing materials (e.g. a range of pencils, charcoal, white chalk and a putty eraser)
