TUTOR: ORION MABELLE
THE 6 WEEKS COURSE WILL RUN FROM WEDNESDAY EVENING 1 AUGUST TO 5 SEPTEMBER. EACH CLASS WILL START AT 6PM AND FINISH AT 9PM.
Life drawing is the best approach to learn the fundamentals of composition, line control and mark making, proportions, volumes, and light and dark shading. This 6 weeks evening class is an intensive engagement with figure drawing using a live model (nude). A model will be present each session for 3 hours. Orion may book different models during the course (male or female).
Students in this course will learn various techniques to create realistic drawings of the human figure through observation. They will be drawing from a live model with practical demonstrations and personalised help from the teacher based on your skill level. The emphasis is on hand-eye coordination, composition and the various approaches to mark making and rendering, and style that emerges through different drawing materials. It will be a good opportunity for artists to gain an understanding and appreciation of the human figure through drawing.
The workshop is suitable for everyone who is interested in drawing the human figure, including established artists, total beginners and anyone in-between.
Note: Although our short courses are available for anyone 14 years old and over, we recommend parents' discretion with this course and consideration that it may be preferable to be 18 and over to attend.
The course fee includes the life model fees for each session.
