A Week Working with the Figure

We will be working with the figure using a variety of means and tools. We will make an experimental journey approaching the human form in an experience that we understand as “expanded life drawing”. From rapid response to prolonged manipulation of media, we will help you to break new ground in your drawing practice.

This workshop will provide a valuable opportunity to enhance your drawing. We will introduce elements that will stimulate and revitalise your work with the figure. As well as dry drawing materials we will be using paint, ink and collage.

This course welcomes beginners as well as those with experience of drawing.

Tutors:  George Levantis and Tony Mott
