Day 1 The human body

Starting with the skeleton, we will be learning how to draw the clothed human body, working from life and from photos. In particular we will be making studies of faces, hands, posture and proportions.

After lunch we will investigate colour, light and shade, and fabric draping with pastels, crayons and acrylic, and make marble-paper if we have time.

Day 2

Paint a portrait in acrylic on canvas 

Pop star, movie star, self portrait, or friend, family or pet - or the Mona Lisa! I will have images for you to work from, or email me in advance your chosen image so I can print it ready for you on A4. Full guidance will be given to create a realistic & artistic painting.

Day 3

Printmaking - lino-cut and drypoint etching

Using my printing press we will be exploring etching techniques, and linocutting using the new soft rubber-type lino. We will study Aubrey Beardsley, Gwen Raverat & Edward Bawden, plenty of reference material will be available to get you started.

If you have an idea you are welcome to bring it too.
