I attended this course recently as a complete beginner to using red conte. The tutor Lance was incredible - he went through everything really clearly and thoroughly, giving us lots of techniques and approaches to make our own work. We had a fantastic model and plenty of time to really give it a go - I absolutely loved it and was really pleased with the results. I've put a lot of what we learnt into practise since and have seen a real improvement in my own work. I highly recommend it!
A thoroughly enjoyable course and excellent value for money, the course is suitable for an absolute beginner and also someone looking to hone their stone lithography skills.
It’s well-structured but you have the flexibility to veer off into your own worlds of lithography experimentation if you want, all supported by the wonderful Scarlett who knows rather a lot about the whole subject! And as an added bonus it was a good laugh, so sign up and see what stones can do for you!
Really enjoyed the course. Lance is an excellent and engaging teacher. I would recommend the course and think it would be suitable for all levels - I'm at intermediate level and it helped me think about shape and perspective etc and refresh/rediscover techniques. Certainly suitable for beginners and Lance is very helpful and gives individual attention to everyone.
I have been to many life drawing classes and this is one of my favorites!
The Draw Brighton team are friendly and welcoming, there is always a good atmosphere in the room, and it's nice to chat with fellow artists at the half time tea break.
I enjoy life drawing, but the added challenge of the body in suspension is great fun!
Naomi is a dedicated model (I've drawn her on and off the hoop over the years) and it is particularly brilliant to draw her on the hoop, as you get to see just how strong she is, and some of the poses she can hold are so different from anything possible on the floor.
The pose lengths are a good mix, and are great for swifter gesture capturing and then a more involved study. The moving pose at the end is no good for my style of work (i just can't cope with it!) so i just sit back and enjoy the show! I have seen many others though, capture some really amazing lines!
I would thoroughly recommend this class to anyone. Though, possibly a complete novice may find it very challenging as some of the poses are very alien from day to day life, but it is very good fun to try!
