The classes are mixed ability and everyone is welcome. Unlike other life drawing classes, our classes are small and friendly with a maximum of ten students, so there is lots of personal attention. If you are a beginner - and lots of our students are - there is a completely non-judgmental atmosphere in which to develop your life drawing skills. The life drawing classes are also great if you’d like to produce work for a portfolio.
What we do in our life drawing class
There are normally three elements to our life drawing classes:
The most important element in your time at the studio is personal practice. We normally have a different model to draw each lesson and a variety of shorter and longer poses to practice your skills. The classes are small and Nick will be able to answer any specific questions you might have.
During each lesson there is instruction in one of the issues involved life drawing. These include proportion, perspective, composition, line, gesture, tone, and colour.
There are many different approaches to drawing, and each lesson we will look at the work of a different artist. This helps you to place yourself within the world of contemporary art and develop your own style of working.
Our next life drawing classes will take place every Wednesday from 7pm to 9pm from the start of April.
The class costs £30 including use of materials.
