It all starts with drawing.
And we think that drawing starts with the human figure. Life Drawing leverages our visual attunement to the human form to help us to learn to draw. It’s also great fun. When we learn to draw we are really learning to look: drawing is just a record of what is seen or felt, either optically or conceptually. The more we draw the better we see, the better we see the more value we bring to what we record.
Our Introduction to Life Drawing is a twelve week course which gives you the confidence to describe the human figure in your own way. Each evening we introduce a new idea and work with it. We have an excellent tutor and professional models in the studio which is Zoomed live to you or you can attend in person at our Covid secure studio, (limited to twelve people). It’ll get you going from the beginning and forms an excellent basis for further study. If you’ve got the basics sorted then try our Intermediate Life Drawing which introduces more sophisticated ways of drawing the human figure, looking at tone (shading), gesture, proportion and anatomy.
The way we all get better is lots of drawing practice. We organise weekly life drawing sessions with shorter poses up to about 10minutes. Once you’ve got your bearings you may want to try a sustained piece of drawing in one of our long pose groups.
