Figure drawing is one of the finest methods to develop hand-eye coordination and thus the ability to accurately draw what you see. This course focuses on observation, rendering and interpretation, gradually introducing more experimental approaches to drawing according to the pace of each student. For the first term we will be exploring a series of long poses, with a view to developing elaborate drawings or loose paintings over a few consecutive sessions with the model. This is an opportunity to explore the narrative potential of the body and a particular scene. This can be approached in a number of separate works for those working swiftly, or a single one. For those wanting to work in oils please refer to materials list on the Painting classes page.
