There is a different emphasis on different days.
Life Drawing Monday and Tuesday
On Monday, poses range from a few minutes to half day and full day. Students concentrate on their figure drawing and develop an understanding of human anatomy. As well as a systematic analysis of anatomy from the live model, students explore line and tone, in the process training their visual memory. Tutor Keith Dewell
On Tuesday, the model holds short poses, ranging from five minutes to half an hour.Tutor Andrew Paviour
The aim, with continued attendance, is for students to gain a sound knowledge of anatomy in order to depict the figure in an expressive, dynamic fashion.
Wednesday and Thursday
Wednesday and Thursday: 9:15am – 12:00pm (morning class) and 12:45pm – 3:30pm (afternoon class). On Wednesdays, there is a different pose in morning and the afternoon for either drawing or quick oil sketches.
