Christmas Holiday: The Drawing Week

When you are drawing remember you are engaging with your mind as well as your optics - we need to learn to draw what we see, not what we think we know. This studio-based course includes a visit to The National Gallery with the acts of drawing from art and drawing from life complementing each other. This can help develop students work and build on their art historical knowledge. Drawing from artwork can give us a deeper understanding of our own drawings, from composition to pictorial space. Drawing in the studio, students will progress from quick drawings from the model to more sustained studies that consider the physical relationship of the model to their surroundings. We will explore proportion and relationships of form, moving into linear sensitivity and tonal relationships. Discussion of the various reasons for making life drawings will be encouraged. This is an intensive drawing course useful for building a portfolio and improving your drawing skills in an immersive environment. All levels welcome including beginners.
