I'm delighted to be putting on a run of four tutored life drawing classes with expert artists from each topic!
The schedule is as follows:
18th Sept // Tutored life drawing ¦ Gesture
25th Sept // Tutored life drawing ¦ Clay
(this one ere)
2nd Oct // Tutored life drawing ¦ Tone
9th Oct // Tutored life drawing ¦ Colour
This session is led by the esteemed Duncan Robertson
, who tutors at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop
and the National Gallery. Clay is DELICIOUS — it slips and slides under your fingers in a most sensual way. Duncan will take us through the practicalities of working with clay — and how to begin capturing the mass and form of the figure whilst keeping proportion. You may find your drawing radically changes after the challenge of thinking about the body in three dimensions. The clay is air-drying — and please bring a tupperware or box to take it home with you.
To give you time to stuck in properly, these tutored sessions are 2 hours 15mins: 7pm -9.15pm at Summerhall's Anatomy Lecture Theatre. You're welcome to bring a bevvy in with you from the bar — alcoholic or non. (Brownie points for bringing a keep cup!). The ticket price for these sessions includes materials but feel free to bring your own favoured paraphernalia. We welcome all ages and stages. Any questions just ping me a message!
Booking is advised for this one (and so I know how much clay we'll need) — however I'll have enough for a good few drop-ins if you're feeling spontaneous. But, there is a wee discount if you buy in advance and even more of a discount if you'd like to buy the block of four. lessons as a course There's a supplement of £2 for this clay class to cover the more expensive clay materials.
On the door: £12/10
In advance (online or in person): £11/9
Block of 4: £32/24
Looking forward to welcoming you
