Young Artists: Summer Holiday Course Aged 11 - 15 Week 1

 

Drawing the Figure: Character and Composition

Explore the depiction of character through a range of sessions with live models, storytelling and opportunities to draw outside.  We will consider both the expression of the sitter, and the mood of the setting. With an introduction to a range of twentieth century big names and a look at identity in 17th century portraiture the week will include a visit to a major exhibition. The focus is on developing quick drawing skills and working from sketches to select and create an interesting composition in the studio.


Course runs from 10am – 4pm, Monday to Friday. Students will be supervised at all times and there will be a maximum class size of 20. This course will run from the studios at Royal Drawing School Shoreditch.
