Course description:

Responding to a life model with a range of drawing techniques, the tutor will take students through a journey from sketching to a fully realised painting. On day one, ways of using the body as inspiration will be explored through the use of line, colour and composition. On the second day a composition based on the these drawings will be developed including another layer of experimentation where the imaginary and the unseen will be added to create an image that has a personal meaning.
