An Introduction to Life Drawing

Taught in our professional studios, this practical course will introduce you to the fundamental principles and skills involved in life drawing. Expert tutors will guide you through sessions and demonstrations then give individual feedback so you can learn the fundamental skills and develop confidence in your life drawing.

This course will enable you to develop your life drawing skills and abilities by exploring the visual potential of the human form interpreted through the analytical and expressive use of a wide range of mark making materials. You will become aware of how the intended purpose of the drawing can affect aesthetic and technical decisions through both the investigation of artists work and by their own practical experimentation.

The character and format of work produced has been devised to be of particular use to students requiring work suitable for portfolio course applications and is also appropriate for anyone with a professional involvement in design.

This course is an ideal opportunity for; artists, designers, illustrators and fashion students looking to explore and harness skills.

Please note: this is a 12 week course with course registration fee of £30.00 and a studio material charge of £60.

"I left the army in August 2016 after serving as a front-line medic for 7 years. I decided to visit the college to explore my options as I knew I wanted to pursue a career as a vet. I chose to study an Access to Higher Education course with pathways in Chemistry, Biology and Applied Science- alongside my GCSE maths and English. The staff at the college have been very supportive. Their industry experience and depth of knowledge has been invaluable to my journey. I recently had an interview at the University of Bristol and was offered a place at the School of Veterinary Sciences – one of only 6 in the UK. The college provided me with a stepping stone to my desired career."Rebecca Williams
