We hold Life Drawing/Portrait Painting classes every Saturday afternoon, in which we will explore different aspects of drawing and painting the human figure. Through understanding the human anatomy (e.g. muscle structure, and studies from skeletons), students will develop their skills in portraiture, hands, feet, movement, etc. We will explore the human figure using various mediums such as graphite, charcoal, pastels, ink, oil paint, watercolour, acrylic paint, or mixed media. We invite both male and female professional life drawing models of all ages and ethnicities. There will be varying pose times and depending on the theme of the day, the model will either be nude or clothed. The same model will pose for four consecutive Saturdays to allow the students to develop and complete their art work.
The course is open to students of all abilities who wish to excel in their life-drawing and portrait painting abilities. It will be particularly useful for students who wish to create an outstanding portfolio for applying to an art college. It is also essential for anyone wishing to pursue an art career.
Students will explore the beauty of the human figure, develop good observation skills, perfect the techniques for portraiture, and learn how to express their inner artist. You will become highly proficient in drawing/painting the human figure with various mediums and in recording different poses in a relatively short time periods. In particular, you will understand how to portray anatomy accurately, to develop your use of light and tone, and to construct a space through the use of settings and backgrounds. By the end of the course, you will have produced several high quality drawings/paintings to add to your art collection!
Our tutors have many years of teaching experience. They graduated from world leading art colleges such as the Royal College of Art, École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Central Saint Martins College of Art, Chelsea College of Art, Goldsmith College of Art and the Florence Academy of Art. They exhibit their work in the UK as well as internationally, and have appeared in various publications and programs, including those of the BBC. These qualities guarantee the high success rate our students achieve in entering the programmes of their choice.
