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.
There are three parts to our life drawing classes:
One: Practical life drawing The most important element in your time at the studio is personal practice. We have different model to draw in each class with a variety of shorter and longer poses to practice your skills.
Two: Instruction in the basic aspects of life drawing There is instruction in one of the issues involved life drawing. These include proportion, perspective, composition, line, gesture, tone, and colour.
Three: Slide show or short film on contemporary art 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.
