Course Summary

This course is suitable for a mix of beginners and for those who are more experienced with drawing. The course explores traditional and contemporary drawing. It aims to expand the students' knowledge of drawing using the life model as subject along with other observational drawing exercises. The course involves drawing with various media, including pencil, pastels, ink, and charcoal as well as basic techniques such as perspective, anatomy, proportion, tonal understanding and mark making. By a dual approach of improving one's traditional and contemporary skills students can learn to create better likenesses as well as work towards their own processes. It also introduces the participant to visual research and to sketchbook practice. Life drawing is an opportunity to really connect with the world around you, and work with and respond to a live model, as well as take part in personalised as well as group feedback.
