The course will cover various aspects of working with a life model, including life drawing and painting, portrait drawing and painting, creating compositions inspired by contemporary artists and old masters.
This course is ideal for complete beginners who have never drawn or painted from a live model before, or for those with some experience, who’d like to brush up their skills and gain confidence in their drawing and colour work.
This course is equally worthwhile for those with no drawing or painting experience, as they are for the experienced artist. The aim of the course is to encourage students to develop their drawing and painting skills via access to what some consider the most compelling form, the human body. NOTE: SOME COURSES ARE ON-SITE, ONLINE ONLY OR A MIXTURE, SO PLEASE CHECK BEFORE BOOKING.
This is a structured course suitable for those new to figure drawing or who would like a "refresher" course, those who have done A level art at school or have art school education to foundation or BA level, but with little previous experience of life drawing.
Portraiture is an art form involving observational, interpretive and expressive skills while trying to capture the ‘essence’ of another human being. Students will be taught how to learn and master these skills while drawing and painting from the model.
