Beginners Life Drawing
4 weeks course.
No one is great at life drawing the first time they pick up a pencil! It takes practice, and that practice is lots of fun and will improve every aspect of your drawing skills.
This set of classes is designed as an introduction to learn about the basics of life drawing in a relaxed and friendly few sessions and take away the scary mystique.
Life drawing is a fantastic way to build your drawing skills and learn how to draw what is there, rather than what you ‘think’ you are seeing, as well as being an absolutely absorbing activity.
Learn different techniques and find which ones appeal to you. The first few weeks we will work from photos. Week one will include body proportioning and starting with a basic ‘stick man’ and moving on from there. Each week we will build on what we have done before so week two we will look at faces as well, week three we will look at extremities, finally moving to an experienced live model in week 4. There will be opportunities to learn pencil techniques and look at different forms of charcoal, as well as touching on some of the other media used, learning about lines of movement, fore- shortening, line drawing styles and shadow blocking.
This is open to all (adults please as some nudity) and we positively encourage you to join if you are lacking in confidence in your drawing skills as this will really build your confidence and skills
Join us for a couple of hours chance to get away from it all and engross yourself in some art. Our adult only sessions take you step by step through how to create your own interpretation of a Klimt masterpiece, master some exciting acrylic techniques or discover the world of watercolours.
