At a Glance:
Join us for a Sunday Social at this Life Drawing Session. This one is all about providing you with the opportunity to draw from life in a relaxed and informal environment. Everyone is welcome, from total beginners to those well versed in artistic pursuits, this class is designed to give you access to a life model and explore your creativity with the human form.
Each class will run for approximately 2 ½ hours starting at 12pm every Sunday at the Rockfield Centre in Oban throughout Sept and October 2019. BYO materials, tea and coffee (and biscuits!) provided, plus some very chilled playlists to keep the ambiance nice and relaxed.
Relaxed, informal and designed to help you develop your skills through drawing from life. This is not an explicitly “taught” class however if you’re a beginner or just need a little inspiration then I’ll be hand to run through the basics of drawing human anatomy and offer you pointers along the way. For those who are more comfortable with drawing and simply want the opportunity to draw from life, then you can fully relax and work through each pose at your own pace. Life drawing is a really intuitive process so you’ll be rocking your inner Picasso in no time at all. Loosely, the session will contain a mixture of long and short poses from our lovely model, providing you the opportunity to develop gestural and quick sketching as well as more detailed drawing. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your ability to draw will improve, life drawing is an absolute must for any artist both budding and established. A totally relaxing way to spend an afternoon with good company and other like-minded creatives.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided as well as some soothing music to help you unwind into Sunday afternoon. If you want more info then get in touch on email@example.com .
What to bring:
To make this session as sustainable as possible please bring along your own materials. You don’t need anything fancy, just some paper and charcoal and some white chalk will do. An easel helps too – a foldable field easel or table easel will be perfect – as does a drawing board (this can literally be a piece of wood that you can rest on or prop on your easel as support) . You’re more than welcome to bring paint but please note that the good old health and safety club prevents use of solvents in inclosed spaces (so no turpentine, sorry!). Graphite pencils, conte and other drawing mediums as well as a putty rubber will also be handy.
Other great mediums for life drawing are pastels and oil sticks, these are great for capturing colour and forms quickly. Some people prefer to draw on large sheets of paper and others in sketch books – it’s entirely up to you!
If you need help with what to bring then don’t hesitate to ask, just email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll also have a limited amount of materials at the class that you can buy direct if you get really stuck – please let me know in advance if you can’t provide your own materials and I’ll do my best to help.
£12.50 for a two and half hour session. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment !
