Cast Drawing Courses | London

Cast Drawing

Term dates, short courses & prices here.

Drawing is the cornerstone of every great artist seeking a formal training.  Those who have completed the Foundation Course will continue to develop their draughting technique in our specialist Cast Drawing Studio.

Projects last 2/3 weeks with a thorough exploration of outline, shadow line, mass in the shadow, mass in the background, middle tones and modelling up to the lights.  Students will develop a thorough understanding of the medium, the support and its potential.

Classes at a variety of times in the week, enrolment dependent on having completed the Foundation Course.


At the beginning of term students will need to buy a box of charcoal and chamois (fabric for erasing), available from Lavender Hill Colours.  Paper is provided initially. In week 4 you will need to buy quality paper so as to more effectively work the chiaroscuro stage.  In week 7 or 8 students start to work in oils, for this will you will need a Starter Painting Kit.

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.

We recommend the following books available from Lavender Hill Colours.

Heads, Features, Faces – G.B.Bridgman

Charles Bargue & Jean-Léon Gérôme Drawing Course – Gerald M. Ackerman

The Practice & Science of Drawing – Harold Speed

Portrait Drawings – John Singer Sargent
