These classes have been designed for individuals who wish to draw, paint and cultivate their creative skills, either for leisure or to update their professional practice. Each session is delivered by an experienced art tutor who will introduce the group to a variety of techniques and assorted visual vocabulary, and offer support in developing specific interests and aspirations. Each member of the group will be encouraged to progress within a stimulating, sympathetic and energising environment.
Life Drawing Fridays 1-4pm and alternate Mondays 7:30-9:30pm These classes are open to individuals of all abilities who wish to develop their life drawing skills. We work in a creative, sympathetic environment using a variety of poses and models. In order to expand your visual vocabulary we encourage critical research and experimentation, and an exhaustive investigation into techniques, methods and materials. Anatomical studies, personalised expression, perspective, tone and colour, line, gesture and proportion are covered in depth.
