Life Drawing Classes

I run both tutored and non tutored life drawing classes. Tutored courses run for 5 weeks and are for all abilities. Taking a materials-led approach we focus on one particular art material for the duration of each course (eg. either ink, charcoal, conte pastel, soluble coloured pencil etc) exploring and respecting all the possibilities of that medium's unique properties. A key element of my courses is the use of unconventional,  found natural materials. A spring tide can bring in driftwood sticks which make wonderful mark making tools for drawing.   During each course we look in turn at one of the 5 main elements of drawing: line, space, proportion, tone and the whole. Both expressive and technical skills are covered.  Dynamic, gestural poses are always integrated into the session along with longer poses. For more details on available classes or for any bookings; contact me at: louisealive@outlook.com or look at my facebook page.
