Life Drawing –  How to begin. Map out a figure simply and then add the detail as you go.  A simple egg shape for the head a rectangle for the torso…

Have you ever wanted to try life drawing but feel you haven’t got the skills to even start? We recommend that you sign up for the five week course which comes with useful handouts you can use as reference sheets afterwards.

We have created a supportive friendly setting where you start to get to grips with

  • proportions of the human body
  • how to measure angles
  • how to use tone and shadow to make your drawing 3D
  • faces, hands and feet
  • how to use colour!

If you want a refresher, or just enjoy a spot of figurative art, you’d be very welcome too. Join Sheila Moylen for an enjoyable two hours developing your life drawing skills on a Saturday morning.

Materials for the sessions:

  • We supply a selection of A2 sized paper and refreshments
  • You supply your own pencils, charcoal and pastels

You will be amazed at what you can achieve in just two hours when you start Saturday morning Life Drawing!
