What you will do

Two session course

Daytime

This weekend course is led by Leo Crane, award-winning animator, painter and tutor. He is co-founder of Figuration, a creative studio for animation and design. He holds an MA (Distinction) in 3D Computer Animation and trained in painting under Maggi Hambling CBE.

From bold mark making to precision drawing, discover the expressive power of charcoal as you capture the human form. Working with a variety of life models, Leo will guide you through exercises that encourage experimentation and creative interpretation.

We start by looking at different approaches to drawing the figure. You will then make your first drawings in a speedy succession of mark making exercises. As the weekend develops, we will look at gesture, pose, proportion and composition, ending with longer poses. By the end of the course, you will have learnt how to depict the body confidently and creatively, leaving with a portfolio of your own drawings.

Each day we'll have a chance to share your work in progress with the group.

No experience is necessary. Bold mark making and a willingness to experiment will help you get the most from this course. For those with life drawing experience, the course offers you the chance to develop and apply your skills in an experimental context.
