Monday evening Life Drawing Workshops 7 – 9pm

These classes are on 17th January, 7th February, 28th February, 21st March

Third Floor Granary Building

Open to all. You do not need a membership to book a workshop.

Workshops can be booked individually at a cost of £15

Go to the website and ‘workshops’ and book on line or print off a form from there or collect one from the Poldrate buildings

In these classes we will explore drawing from the life figure and focus on:

• how to see and record accurately
• how to experiment with materials
• how to develop a more confident and personal response

Drawing from life is a wonderfully intense way to experience the act of drawing and explore our creative journey.

Please bring a range of materials to the class e.g. A1 or A2 paper, pencils, charcoal, (willow and compressed), charcoal pencil, eraser, drawing ink, pen and nib, a small cheap printing roller, brushes, white paint (water based, acrylic, gouache, even matt emulsion), watercolour set and a palette.

Don’t worry if you do not have all these materials; just bring what you have and you can build up as you go. This list will allow for a wide range of possibilities and lots of fun. Also dress so you will not worry about potentially getting a little messy.
