The course Covers deconstructing the body into three dimensional forms. Gesture and Anatomy is understanding of the relation between form and function so that the student is able to apply this across artistic disciplines.
Returning students focus on internalising an understanding of the human form so as to execute quick gestural drawings.
At the beginning of term students will need to buy a box of charcoal, chamois (fabric for erasing) and generals pencils available from Lavender Hill Colours.
Recommended Further Studies:
We encourage students to compliment their studies by taking the time to visit exhibitions and practice sketching in museums. In addition, the Studios host a range of events throughout the term aimed at enhancing the artist’s understanding of their craft and the tradition that they are working within.
