Drawing, like painting, is a tactile endeavour and through our mark making, connections and revisions, we reveal clarity, feeling and atmosphere. Sometimes we will make compositions speedily, and sometimes we will develop a drawing over several hours to see how compositions can evolve radically from their beginning. As a starting point, and with these concepts in mind, students will be drawing from different models on Monday and Tuesday and will be encouraged to develop the kind of drawing that leads to bold decisive lines or tones that evoke light, space and the model’s presence within a designed composition. From Wednesday to Friday students will be painting from a sustained model pose each day, with the emphasis on firm, clear, unfussy structure with guidance on a choice of colour palette. You will be shown how to achieve clarity of space by making decisions that affect the whole composition. All levels welcome including beginners.
