Graham has had many years’ experience in tutoring life drawing and is a well-known figure in the arts scene in Edinburgh. His own practice is rooted in drawing; both life and portraiture; and he now has collectors for his extraordinary drawings, and paintings, from all over the world.


Working from the nude model is a core activity within art practice and during this course you will be encouraged to develop your understanding of the human form, maintaining throughout a creative and personal approach. You will be working predominantly in charcoal.


This course will enable students to demonstrate that they are able to:

- Work with materials such as charcoal and pencil

- Understand proportion, body mass and structure

- Investigate new ways of looking at and understanding the human figure

- Take a personal and confident approach to drawing
