Life Drawing Courses

Tutor Louise Banks

The Saturday will start with short poses and an introduction to some experimental methods and materials. My approach is initially to focus on ‘mark making’ rather than conventional drawing techniques as a way in to the subject. The day will be shaped around exercises that encourage personal research and development and discourage the pursuit of perfection!  We will be using Indian ink, ink washes and unconventional drawing tools. I came across a quote by contemporary artist Toby Mulligan who uses many of the same drawing methods that we will be applying:


" That way the fear of criticism, all that distracting stuff that goes on in our heads all the time about whether you’re any good or how pleased you are with something – it all goes away because you’re too busy focusing."  


During the afternoon there will be one long pose and I will be providing guidance on simple methods of establishing scale and proportion. 

On Sunday we will be using charcoal. This day will be about bringing the two approaches together - our intuitive, emotional response with the more academic. The aim is to convey scale and proportion without losing the flow.
