This life drawing and portrait painting art course is aimed at students wishing to focus on the exploration of the human figure. The course tutors will show students how different body features relate to one another, and will hence instruct them on how to represent anatomy, musculature and different poses effectively.
The art teachers will also introduce students to drawing techniques which will ensure the proper representation of each anatomical part from hands, feet, legs and arms to facial features such as eyes, nose, lips, and ears. The use of study skeletons and cast objects will aid the students with the manipulation of tones, textures and volume for fine academic representations of the body.
The presence of life models will enable students to develop their ability to handle light and shade, to represent different body types and to draw musculature in motion.
Please note that there are some preliminary foundational skills and knowledge with regular drawing and painting that you will need before successfully approaching the human body.
This will ensure that you will have all the foundational skills necessary to enjoy this course.
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. 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.
