Life Class Weekend ( 2 days for painting and drawing 10 – 4pm )
You are welcome to book for one or two days. However priority in terms of discounts will be only given to those who book for the two days.
Saturday will be an exploratory session starting with quick poses and developing into poses of up to one hour. Sunday will have a pose for the duration of the day so that paintings or drawings can be developed in greater depth. The model will occupy a space consisting of backdrops and good lighting lending itself to interesting compositions and colour. Tuition will be mostly on a one-to-one basis and tailored to individual needs. Some of those attending will have been before, so it will be a matter of developing their work to a further stage . While others with less experience will be given individual instruction, help and aims to focus on. This course is suitable for all levels and abilities. However, some experience with life drawing and painting would be of benefit. If possible it is recommended that beginners book the beginners class on Monday 19th of October and/or November 23rd .
