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.

LEVEL 2 – Introduction to Portraiture | £270

Continuing working from plaster casts students will begin by producing a copy of a skull to gain a good understanding of the base structure of the head before breaking it down to simple planes.  Copies will be at 3/4 life size so as to learn to work with scale without compromising anatomical accuracy.  This building up of knowledge and skill is intended to give students the best possible grounding from which to progress to life model work.

Still life painting is a wonderful means by which to explore and develop the fundamentals of drawing and painting:

  1. Proportion and relative proportion
  2. Composition and the relationships of objects.
  3. Colour
  4. Focus and Edges
  5. Art material and techniques

It is also part of every student’s Foundation Course, as it allows them to systematically move through the different stages of the learning process (as above). A student will start with plaster casts but move onto still life painting in their first term. The foundation course is held every term and as a 4/5 day course in October and July.
