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.
This experimental life drawing workshop will begin with a talk and presentation about Perspective, Tone and Values, followed by rapid sketching and short poses from the model using charcoal. In the afternoon students will work from the model with collage and drawing, using torn paper and pritt stick glue. The day will finish with a plenary session.
This intense life drawing workshop will initially focus on capturing the essence of the subject as simply as possible, searching for what is meaningful. Line will be the primary tool. As the day progresses these drawings will increase in scale and become more tonal, the length of pose will also increase into the afternoon session. The day will conclude with a plenary session.
