Service Description

In this two day class, students can develop their skills in drawing under the guidance of artist and tutor Siri France who has a wealth of experience in figure drawing and is an established artist and tutor. This course will give us experience of drawing the clothed figure. We will try short active poses to loosen up and capture gesture, and longer seated ones to work with tone, line and composition. Studying the work of relevant artists such as Degas and Diebenkorn will help us to think carefully about both the quality of our markmaking, but also how the figure fits into our overall composition. Our classes are small, which means that there is plenty of one on one time with the tutor and students don't get 'lost' in a large group. The aim of this class is to give those the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of building blocks of drawing in a fun and friendly environment. Materials List White and toned paper Pencils (2b to 8b) Rubber and putty rubber Willow charcoal Charcoal pencil
