A ten week course with a weekly project; using both the clothed model and still life

set ups in the studio.

On the days with the model we will be focussing on the various body parts such as

hands/feet/torso learning how to see and draw them both as simple shapes together

with their underlying structure ending up with realistic 3D drawings

Drawing from the still life set ups on alternate weeks we will be learning how to use a

limited palette in acrylics by choosing one of the following selections:

1. Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, Black, White

2. Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue, Black, White

3. Cerulean Blue, Cadmium Orange*, Black, White

Using a limited selection of colours gives confidence when mixing colours and for

gaining an appreciation for the myriad of tones and hues that can be achieved.
