This is a three day course taking place all day on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. It will give you a taste of a range of practical exercises as well as art history and theory.
On day one, we'll explore drawing techniques using pencil, charcoal and pastel. On day two, we'll have a life drawing session with a model and learn techniques for gestural drawing and measuring, to describe proportion accurately, with lots of short poses and exercises working up to a long pose. On day three, we'll examine the history and techniques of abstraction. Working in acrylic paint you'll unlock your imagination by looking at different artists for inspiration, including the abstract expressionists.
