This workshop is open to people working at all levels.
The workshop will begin with some short warm up poses, moving on to twenty to thirty-minute drawings. Theresa will demonstrate different techniques and you will be encouraged to try different approaches. We will look at strategies to achieve correct proportion in various poses. Theresa will offer advice throughout, discussing progress, aims and any specific queries with individuals. In the afternoon session we will decide together whether to do one, two or three poses depending on what the group want to achieve by the end of the day.
Theresa Gourlay is a graduate in Drawing and Painting from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee. Because Life drawing requires deep concentration and observation, it is, for Theresa, the ultimate way to build and maintain skills for all kinds of art practice. Focussing intensely in this way is also a wonderful way to empty the head of other concerns!
The tutor will provide some charcoal and A2 newsprint. Please bring any other materials (including paper) that you might like to use.
