A special in-person tutored life-drawing session. 11am until 1pm.
What to expect?
A meditative 2 hours of experimentation and fun, helping you gain confidence in how to approach figurative drawing.
For this special in person session we’re excited to welcome portrait painter and artist Isabel Douglas-Hamilton who will help you on your way! Isabel’s teaching will help you hone your observational skills and establish correct proportions in figure drawing with the use of classical drawing techniques.
The class will start with Isabel demonstrating how to make simple gestural line drawings and we’ll also put this to practice, loosening up and getting our eye in with short poses. Isabel will then do a more detailed demonstration to show how she approaches the figures including some useful ways of measuring basic proportions.
Never joined a life drawing session before? Not confident with drawing yet…here is your chance to practice and improve with no judgement!
Everyone is welcome, just pick up your pencil or any material lying around and start exploring!
What will you need to bring?
Just yourself. We will provide boards, paper and charcoal. However, if you’d like to experiment with other mediums please bring your own additional supplies.
