Life drawing and still lifes - all levels

Experimenting with different techniques is key on this course. We will be working with pastel, ink, collage and watercolour; each technique being introduced by looking at the work of well-known artists. In so doing we will explore a path through art history. We will 'translate' 3D onto a flat surface by practising still life, portrait and drawing models. Proportion, line, form, composition, light and shadow will be the main aim on this course, but there will also be exercises focusing on a more artistic way of looking at classical subjects, abstracting forms and experimenting with composition and colour. The materials are included in the price and individual coaching will be giving during the lessons. More information about the teacher on https://www.saatchiart.com/miriamhommes
