Young Artists Summer Holiday Course Aged 11-15 Shoreditch Week 1

Figure and Costume

Challenging the way we see the figure, students will take inspiration from the people and costumes in historic and contemporary paintings, film stills and stories. Working from the model and different set-ups in the studio, students will have a plethora of scenes to draw and take inspiration from. Each day we will use different techniques and exercises to challenge the way we see. Inventiveness and risk-taking in image-making will be encouraged. Proportion and the relationship between form and space will be introduced. There will be lots of opportunity for group discussions and critiques in a creative and supportive environment, inclusive of all abilities and experience.
