DRAWING WORKSHOP - THE HUMAN FORM (WEEKEND)

Drawing_01

TUTOR: PETRA LUDVIGSON

Life drawing is a traditional method used to learn and practice the fundamentals that make up observational drawing. How to look and draw what we see, different ways to make marks, creating shape and form, light and shadow, negative spaces, perspectives and basic composition.

Through the use of a live model, this dynamic workshop blends theory, technical knowledge, and individualised instruction that is suitable for students at all levels.

Day 1 - students will focus on drawing the human form. Day 2 - students will be introduced to drawing facial features in more detail through the use of self-portraiture.

Sketching pad

Range of graphite pencils hb 2b 4b 6b

About Petra Ludvigson:

Petra Ludvigson is an abstract expressionist painter with a background in conceptual art. Starting her training at ASA in 1996 and graduating with a BVA from AUT in 2006, she has enjoyed a 20 yr+ relationship with the Auckland art world.

Utilizing line and texture, her work explores the female form as an abject location. Desire, objectification, expectation, possession, reproduction, power and control…. the female body becomes occupied and the self is leaked out.

Alongside her own art practice and teaching adult education, Petra runs art therapy groups for people living with dementia and adults with special needs.
