Evening Course 2016

Drawing - course full - reserve list

Mondays 6.00pm – 8.30pm, £325

Autumn Term: 10 October - 28 November 2016 / 8 evenings

This course gives students the opportunity to explore core drawing skills. We will use drawing as a means of articulating form and as a tool for thinking, to encourage students to explore and nurture ideas through drawing and as inspiration for their own art practice. Using the idea of perception as the starting point for visual enquiry, we will be working almost entirely from observation. The eight sessions will explore light and tone, materials and surface, space and line, composition, measurement, proportion and drawing systems such as perspective. Students will draw from a life model for three of the eight sessions. They will experiment with a variety of techniques and materials including pencil, ink, white chalk, willow and compressed charcoal.
