Monday evenings starting 22nd April, from 5:00pm – 7:00pm.

£170 for 10 week course.

Suitable for both newcomers / beginners and for those continuing from previous courses, as the tutor will tailor the material to individual participants.

Programme:

The course is aimed at adults of any age, both beginners and the more advanced, who want to directly work from a human model or still life.

There will be a human model for most of the sessions, performing very short, short, and long poses giving the students a chance to practice drawing at various speeds. We also will make use of still life and/or sculpture as well as printed pictures to practice on specific skills.

The main method that is taught and practiced in the course is the traditional “stick measurement” and “sight-size drawing method”. However, the following topics will be covered throughout the course:

– The sight-size method versus the comparative method of drawing

– Using alignments, angles, relative proportions, and cross points in figure drawing

– Postural drawing and quick drawing

– Human body proportions

– Shades and values

– Foreshortening

– Using a grid

– Using a proportional divider
