Life Into The Figure
Monday 6.15 – 8.30 PM
2 November - 7 December
*includes all materials
Tutor: Jill Martin Boualaxai
Venue: Edinburgh Palette
Working from the life model in the studio this 6 week block will enable you to develop your drawing skills and your own unique language of marks through experimentation with different techniques and drawing media.
The class provides a structured and supportive environment comprising of drawing exercises designed to inspire authentic and creative responses to the human form. Each session will concentrate on a different approach to drawing and over the six sessions we will cover: line, tone, gesture, shape and form. We will use a range of drawing materials and you will gain confidence in working with wet and dry materials from charcoals and graphite to ink and brushes.
Each class will begin with a short slide talk looking at the work of artists relevant to what we will be doing in that session.
The sessions are fully instructed and suitable all abilities.
All are welcome to join whether you are a complete novice or a seasoned drawer.
