JULY | TWO X THREE DAY | ACADEMIC FIGURE DRAWING SUMMER SCHOOL | NICHOLAS ROBINSON
Monday 8th - Wednesday 10th July 10.30 -4.30pm (15hrs)
Learning to draw the figure are fundamental practices in all areas of figurative art.
Working in the academic style is designed to build the artist’s visual understanding of three-dimensional form and develop accurate drawing and painting.
In the first week of the course participants draw the figure in charcoal or pencil, an exercise which eliminates the challenge of considering colour and concentrates on accurate drawing, describing anatomical form and observation and creating an impression of dark and light.
The instruction throughout is based on the ‘sight-size’ technique which uses the viewing position of the viewer in relation to the subject and his/her paper or canvas to develop a high degree of accuracy. Anyone with an interest or with experience in drawing and painting the figure is welcome.
Participants may attend the workshop for either of the 2 weeks or both 2 weeks.
Nicholas Robinson was studio assistant at the Florence Academy of Art, Sweden for 2 years winning 2 awards whilst training there and has since been an Art Renewal Center (ARC) finalist and prize-winner and a Hennessy Portrait Prize nominee.
