The sessions this term will be taught by Mick Kirkbride NEAC. 

All levels of ability are welcome, with some basic materials provided. Poses vary from short to more sustained, with an emphasis on exploring the broad language of drawing through a flexible approach, and varied methodology.

About your Tutor: Mick Kirkbride NEAC is the current curator of all workshops and classes at the New English and former Senior Lecturer in drawing at The University of the Arts London. His work although primarily about invention has its foundations in the observed world where people, objects, styling and gesture are often starting points.
