My Norfolk life drawing classes feature male and female models and the groups are of mixed ability. Beginners are welcome as well as those looking to improve their drawing skills. The tuition is excellent with demonstrations and explanations on how to go about drawing.
The art materials you need are quite simple - an A3 cartridge sketchpad, a light board for support, a 2b pencil with sharpener and eraser and some thick charcoal sticks. You won't need anything else (except for the watercolour workshop) as initially you'll be mainly learning the skill of how to look with the artist's eye. The real skill and pleasure of drawing is knowing how to look and see clearly what's in front of you.
My life drawing lessons will teach you how to go about drawing with clarity and confidence. I'll show you how to start and how to develop your drawings, maintaining proportions and dealing with perspective problems. I'll show you the basics of shading and modelling to create three dimensions and atmosphere. I'll show you how to get the best out of charcoal and watercolour.
