Life Drawing – Expressive Lines

A session for recent beginners and intermediate life drawers to grow your palette of observation skills and expressive mark making.

You can quickly spot the difference between the lines of someone who is focused on getting a drawing right, and the lines of someone who is fluent in their visual language. When you find your own ‘voice’ the quality of your lines and mark making becomes fluid. This workshop will take you through wet and dry media to discover possibilities for your aesthetic vocabulary.

My life drawing classes are always warm, engaging and rewarding. I provide an encouraging environment, so even if you are really sure you can’t draw you will be pleasantly surprised.
