Young Artists: Summer Holiday Course Aged 11 - 15 Week 1
Figure and Costume
Throughout history art has represented people’s status or trade through their clothes. In this course students will look at the clothed figure, working from live costumed models in the studio, creating paper costumes and props and visiting the costume galleries at the Museum of London. How does the figure moves within their clothing? How is clothing such as uniform fit for certain duties? And how does fashion change through the ages in relation to the body. Short studies and longer sustained drawings will lead to a small portfolio of work on this theme.
Courses run 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.
