We will be offering guided life drawing classes again as a complement to the John Brack: Works on Paper exhibition. All welcome, no prior skills necessary.

This course is designed as an introduction to drawing the unclothed human figure. The life- drawing class is a necessary step in developing an understanding of the structure of the figure and capturing the expressive qualities of line and movement. A professional artists' model will be employed and all poses will be discreetly set in accordance with traditional and professional standards.  The course will be organised over a period of 5 weeks - five by 1.5 hour life drawing classes. Each lesson having focus and building from previous classes. 

An instructor will be present at all sessions to supervise and offer their advice and assistance to artists, but the emphasis will be on individual practise through guided activities.

Why Nude Models?

The figure has been revered as a symbol of perfection since the time of the Ancient Greeks, who modelled their gods in the image of man. Drawing of the unclothed human body is used in most art institutions as a necessary step in developing an understanding of the expressive qualities that only the figure can provide. Cajetan Goves is the artist educator that will be leading this class.
