Weekend Life Class 3

Weekend Life Class 3   November 9,10 &11  (Sat-Mon)

Weekend Life class 3 starts with a full day of drawing from quick poses to longer ones. Experimentation with  different materials will be encouraged  ranging from dry methods  to wet using materials such as charcoal, soluble graphite and ink . Saturday and Sunday will consist of longer poses to accommodate those painting. The mornings of Sunday and Monday  will have he same pose . The afternoons will ave a different pose. Thereforethe duration of each pose will be 5 hours.

Drawing is encouraged as much as painting so the long sessions suit both and allow time for some substantial and intense work.  Tasks will be set but instruction is mostly on a one-to-one basis and tailored to individual needs and experiences. Some of those attending will have been before, therefore it’s a matter of developing everyones’ work to a further stage.


Weekend Life Class (3)  is suitable for intermediates and advanced. Some experience with working from the figure istherefore helpful.
