This Introduction to Life Drawing short course will focus on the fundamentals of life drawing. Every session is conducted with a life model (undressed). You will be introduced to various strategies and techniques for drawing the figure. This course will assist beginner and intermediate artists in developing fundamental drawing techniques.
During this course, you will explore line, tone, proportion and value and discover effective ways to see and use these elements in a drawing.
In this course participants get to take a break from the daily rush to reflect and wind down. Through gently exploring different creative mindfulness exercises and trying different art materials we playfully engage with how we are feeling and what might help us to take care of ourselves in our day to day lives. We use creative processes and art making to focus on the here and now and to get out of the thinking brain and into a more tactile making experience.
Our School Holiday Workshops vary each school holidays, giving children and teen's a chance to try something new or deep dive into technique. Join us for our fun and engaging workshops with experienced artists and teachers guiding your creativity!
