Introduction to Life Drawing

Date: Monday, May 13, 2024
Time: 10am - 4pm
Duration: 6 hours
Venue: The Courthouse
All materials are provided.
Through a series of short and long poses, Jo Lawson will guide you through every stage of drawing from direct observation to enable you to successfully draw the human form.
Life drawing is a form of visual art that focuses on the depiction of the human figure in various poses and situations.
In this beginners workshop we will dive into the basics of observational drawing, exploring how these elements can be used to convey the three-dimensional aspects of the human body.
You will gain valuable insights and practical skills that will serve as a solid foundation for your ongoing artistic journey. Get ready to bring the human figure to life on paper through the power of line and tone!
Jo completed a degree at Winchester School of Art and worked in the art and design industry before gaining a PGCE and has been teaching for over 20 years.
