Learn the key foundations and skills of life drawing.

2 hours

This workshop will provide you with an ideal introduction to life drawing. Suitable for all levels, we will begin with the key principles of observation, giving you a strong foundation to make well-observed, proportionally accurate drawings. Then, following on-screen drawing demonstrations and explorative practice exercises, you will have the chance to draw from an unclothed model posing live via Zoom.

All you need to take part is good paper and decent pencil, a Zoom account and a tablet or computer to watch on.
