This course is suitable for all ranges of experience, and the content may vary and be adapted to meet the abilities and needs of the class.
An ideal opportunity to develop key drawing skills and work with a range of models and poses. You will develop observational skills, looking for balance and symmetry and gesture in your drawing, and using different media.
You will learn how to represent three-dimensionality in a 2-D form, researching and development stages of ideas and techniques relating to the subject through independent sketchbook/portfolio work.
As a learner you will be encouraged to broaden your awareness and knowledge of both traditional and contemporary art practices in relation to the representation of the human form and motivated to use a variety of media.
Please bring a sketch pad and pencil and any medium of your choice, ie pastels, watercolours or acrylics, with you. You will need to supply your own materials, although drawing boards are available for use throughout the course.
The tutor will discuss various options during the course and will encourage you to produce large-scale work, eg A3 or A2, for use on easels.
