The human body is a wonderfully diverse subject from which to draw and paint. This course will explore the nude figure in depth, as well as portraiture and working from the draped figure.

Different approaches will be encouraged, with students being taught how to draw human anatomy analytically as well as taking a more expressive approach. Colour will also be covered, with the particular challenges of painting flesh given consideration. There will be a variety of poses throughout the term. Quick poses will allow students to introduce spontaneity and lively mark-making to their work, and through sustained poses lasting two or more weeks, students will be encouraged to challenge themselves, and produce more resolved work. Each week is carefully structured with different subjects, media and processes taught so students build on their learning from week to week. All materials are provided each week in order that students make full use of their time in the studio. Most classes start with a short slide lecture of artists’ work, connecting art of the past and present to practical studio work.
