Figure Drawing Courses in London

Course Overview

The Importance of Working from the Figure Model: A true understanding of the fundamental principles of figurative art: proportion, volume, gesture, values, edges and colour, can only really be taught and learnt by working from life, and especially from the life model.

In the history of art education it was often considered the highest form of art and the foundation for all other aspects of drawing and painting. Students were expected to understand and draw the figure before they could move onto other subjects. This is not because it is the easiest but, conversely, because it is the most challenging discipline. Once a student has mastered the figure, all other subjects are relatively easy – portraiture, landscape, still life, composition, colour etc.

Course Structure

Figure drawing and painting classes are held every day at the studios, including Saturday mornings. They are also held on a Monday and Tuesday evenings. Once students have completed the Foundation Course, they can choose to enrol on the Figure Course at any of the available times.

Etching and Printmaking Courses

 

Course Overview

The course focuses on the fundamentals of intaglio printmaking, using modern non-toxic and safe alternatives to traditional methods.

Course content

Beginner students will explore intaglio printmaking techniques using aluminium, a cheap and effective metal for intaglio printmaking. Students will be taken through the various methods of intaglio printmaking from dry point, hard ground, soft ground and aquatint. As aluminium is inexpensive compared to copper much experimentation can be done in order to understand the effects of the different processes. Students will also be shown copper and zinc as they develop along with how different inks and papers greatly affect the outcome of a print.

Later on, the students will work with different printmaking disciplines including aquatint and monoprint.

Materials:

First aluminium plate and inks are provided. Further plates and papers are available from Lavender Hill Colours.
