Tuesday:
Life Drawing

Introduction

Course Name: Life Drawing

Coures Overview: The aim is for beginners to acquire confidence in basic drawing and observational skills in a relaxed, stimulating atmosphere.  More advanced students are given the chance to revisit the basics of figure drawing while also being challenged to improve their competency.  All students will expand their visual understanding of the human form.

Course Outline:

Working from the nude figure, students will be introduced to relevant elements of drawing (including line, shape, form, tone, proportion, basic anatomy, composition etc) using a variety of media (pencil, charcoal, ink, oil pastel, contee sticks etc). Some of the approaches used emphasize accurate observational drawing, while others involve a more intuitive or playful approach. As the course progresses, students will be encouraged to explore different materials and ways of working, and to select and develop those that are of individual interest. 

Materials: Paper is supplied. First class: students should bring a range of pencils (2B, 4B, 6B), erazer and pencil sharpener. Further materials will be discussed in class.

Award: Certificate of Attendance (on request). Pleaes email gtiadulted@gretb.ie
