Life Drawing with Width of Circle
Hosted by General Office*
£95 (maximum of 12 participants)
This is a five week course, designed to give participants a structured introduction to the basic building blocks of life drawing. The course aims to develop a spontaneous and expressive approach to learning and drawing.
Perfect for beginners and established artists looking for new challenges and expert support with their drawing practice.We will be working with a traditional life drawing set up; a nude model, studio easel and boards. All basic materials wil be provided.
Week 1 - Looking and line - We will explore contour, line and ways of seeing; and begin to ask the question what is a good drawing?
Week 2 - Line and contour - We will continue to explore line by applying excercises that will act as "yoga for the mind". This will deepen our undertanding of the figure and of the language of line.
Week 3 - Measurement - Learn to problem solve the drawn figure through considering traditional measuring techniques.
Week 4 - Tone - We will develop quick and spontaneous applications of tone to support the atmosphere and mood of the drawings.
Week 5 - Bringing it together - In this last session we will draw together the various elements of what we have learned, consider your development over the five weeks and begin to talk about personal expression and where to take your practise in the future.
The course is designed and delivered by artist Dean Melbourne, a Stourbridge based painter; whose practise is routed in drawing and the figure. He has exhibited internationally and taught life drawing, courses and workshops for over 20 years ago.
