Life & Portrait - Life Drawing Workshop (SFY) [RDF370NZ]: Overview

Would you like to try life drawing or would like to rekindle a former interest? This one day workshop is an ideal place to start. You will be amazed at what you can achieve in a short period of time.

What will we cover?

The workshop will include a variety of different length poses including ‘gesture drawings’. These are short studies of the figure, drawn rapidly to capture the essence of the pose. Subjects covered during the day will include dealing with the basic principles of life drawing, using measuring techniques, plotting negative spaces and learning composition. Throughout the day you will be encouraged to develop your own style.Teaching is on a class and one to one basis.
Learning goals are:To recognise simplified geometric forms within the body.To demonstrate an understanding of the body shape and its proportions.To learn and develop quick drawing techniques.To enjoy the drawing experience and have fun.

Who is this course for? Is there anything I need to know before joining?

The workshop is for all abilities: both beginners and improvers. If you have not drawn the human figure before then there is no need to worry as full support is given throughout the day.

As our courses are taught in English, please contact us if you have any concerns about your level of English.

What do I need to bring to the first class? Will there be any extra costs?

Drawing paper - size A1/A2 and an A1/A2 flip chart or other cheap paper is needed for quick drawings. Charcoal of mixed sizes, pencils, putty rubber/eraser, bulldog clips or masking tape for the board.

What can I do when I finish the course?

You may wish to enrol on a life drawing course that runs for a term. If you wish to put a portfolio together for entrance to an art college then this is a distinct advantage. You may wish to progress on to other courses in painting, drawing, illustration and sculpture. This class offers you the opportunity to meet like-minded people and make friends.
