As with all weeks there will be step by step guidance and live demonstrations. This session focuses on full bodily proportions, as well as zooming in on lesser depicted, and often avoided challenges such as hands and feet.
Session 2: 13th July – anatomy
Da vinci believed in order to draw the body we must first understand the anatomy. This session will focus on different anatomical drawings to heighten our awareness of what lies beneath the figure we will depict.
Session 3&4: 20th & 27th July – life drawing with model
The first session will be a more Experimental session where we will create a series of quicker studies using innovative and unusual drawing approaches, in th second sitting we will build in confidence with some larger and longer drawn figure studies using a range of medias. There will be no filmed demonstration due to the nature of these two sessions.
Session 5: 3rd august – Developmental outcomes
By the end of this final Session everyone will take elements of their previous depictions to expand using wet media.
All sessions take place from 10.15am – 12.45pm at St Mary’s Handbridge Centre
