This weekend workshop is ideal for beginner, intermediate and professional artists who would like to gain experience in drawing the nude figure from life in charcoal and chalk. No experience is necessary – there is a maximum of 10 participants and the tutor will customise the course according to your individual needs.
In traditional atelier training, before you learn to paint you first learn to draw in charcoal and chalk. It’s an easier medium than oil, but provides you with an excellent foundation. By removing the problem of colour, you can you focus on drawing, values and edges – probably the three most important principles in both drawing and painting.
In this class, you will learn:
- How to create a figure drawing from start to finish
- The importance of gesture and anatomy in figure drawing
- The importance and principals of drawing, values and edges
- How to handle charcoal and chalk
It is the ideal way to take your drawing skills to the next level.
