The sessions this term will be taught by Mick Kirkbride NEAC

All levels of ability are welcome, with some basic materials provided (charcoal and paper) but do bring your own drawing media too. 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 is the current Curator of the New English Education Programme 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.
