Event description

Description

Our super-popular Drawing class with local expert Michael Ajerman returns with a new focus on observational drawing in the new year.

This course will focus on working from direct observation. This means trying to understand and capture the way objects appears to us in a physical space and investigating how mass, shape, and light can affect our perception of our surroundings. Students will address these issues through focusing on still life and a life model. We will alternate between the two for the term, working in pencil, coloured pencil, charcoal, and/or pastel pencils.

Week 1

Students will draw from a large still life. Choosing to focus either on a specific item/object or from a large composition of items arranged on the tables. This will enable minor details to become monumental and forms to really be addressed, along with the interplay of objects in order to make an interaction between the shapes. Students are encouraged to bring in an item or objects that they would like to draw from, to add to the composition. The more variety of items, the better.

Week 2

A semi-clothed female model will be present and students will incorporate the lessons learnt from the previous class while drawing from the human form. We will be doing long and short poses.

Week 3

Students will draw from a large still life. Choosing to focus either on a specific item/object or from a large composition of items arranged on the tables. This will enable minor details to become monumental and forms to really be addressed, along with the interplay of objects in order to make an interaction between the shapes. Students are encouraged to bring in an item or objects that they would like to draw from to add to the composition - the more variety of items, the better.

Week 4

A semi-clothed male model will be present and students will use the lessons learnt from the term to draw from the human form. We will be doing long and short poses.

Materials

All basic materials are provided. It is recommended that if students have a drawing tool/medium they wish to explore or already have at home (coloured pencils, pastels, conte’) to please bring it to the class. The more variety, the better.

This is a 4-week course and may be booked as individual sessions or an entire course block. Barnes Class reserves the right to cancel any class with a 24-hour notice period due to lack of demand.
