Monday Evenings – An Introduction to Life Drawing

For anyone serious about getting better at drawing whether you are a complete beginner or wanting to improve on what you’ve got.

How we teach

We don’t think there is only one way of drawing so we introduce several different approaches to capturing the figure including contour, gestural and schematic drawing, and provide the tools for proportional drawing. It seems that most of us find one approach suits us better than the others and we encourage people to notice what works best for them and go with it.

We demonstrate so you can see an artist tackling a problem and learn visually and we also interact with you individually to support you as you assimilate what has been shown and discussed.

Daisy Perkins teaching to Zoom

We learn to draw mostly through practice, after participating in this course you will have the understanding to be able to practise with purpose, to make sure that your efforts are directed effectively towards mastery.

Whilst this course is progressive many artists enjoy repeating the terms to embed their learning.

The course tutors are usually Daisy Perkins or Simon Dunstan.
