About the Course

3 days developing your compositional skills though practical exercises and looking at the work of other artists

Who is this course for
This class is for all levels of ability. It will allow beginners to think about fundamental ideas such as how to place a figure within a space, and advanced students will be able to experiment with design ideas that will hopefully push their work into having more compositional power.

Concessionary fees are available to those who are eligible - please see our website for more details.

What does this course cover
A three day workshop that will allow students to think about ways to draw the model as part of a composition. We will look at examples by Rubens, Titian, Cezanne and Poussin, and how these artists use interconnected poses and movement to create a flow across the overall scene.

What will it be like
Each day a model will perform multiple poses throughout the day. Each pose will connect and compliment the next. Students will first have an opportunity to draw all the poses quickly and work out their composition. They will then have the rest of the day to work on a longer picture.
