Life Drawing

Wednesday 15th Jan 2020 — Wednesday 25th Mar 2020, The Base

Learn the skills needed to draw the human form.

Life drawing is the traditional discipline of working from the (usually) naked body.

This course will give a balance of observational skills and creative experiments, with the time to discover your own directions. Teaching as a group and encouraging individualism, enjoy this immensely rewarding experience.

There will be a selection of different models to work from through the course, focusing on different aspects of observation each week. Everyone will be made to feel welcome and comfortable.

Course dates: Wednesdays, 15 Jan - 12 Feb & 26 Feb - 25 March
