Thursday Life Drawing 5 Week Course
Why life drawing? Life drawing can give us a special and intense engagement with the visual world of forms in space. The emphasis will be about looking hard, both at the model and their surroundings, and at one’s own drawing. Through drawing, our imagination explores space; observing structure and movement in the figure with its direct relation to distance is always surprising. Sometimes an intense experience of the subject can lead to a new way of drawing. Sometimes drawing can make us see more in the subject. Looking without preconception, letting each drawing be a new expression of a particular experience we learn to see more and better. There will be both long and shorter poses and different media and paper sizes are encouraged. Suitable for all levels.
