Event description
Learn the principles of classical drawing and how to apply them working from life.

About this Event

On this 5 day course you’ll split your time between making a charcoal study of a classical Charles Bargue lithograph and producing a classical figure drawing from life.

In the mornings you’ll work on charcoal copy of a Charles Bargue Lithograph. These are taken from a drawing course created in the 19th Century, designed to train art students in the principles of classical drawing. The course is widely used today in atelier training because it allows students to learn various drawing principles a controlled way.

In the afternoon you’ll apply these principles as you create a figure drawing from life, building it up using the same approach which you’ll learn from the Bargue copy.

This approach is used in classical ateliers because it allows you to understand essential drawing principles in theory and then see how to apply them in reality.

Through producing a Bargue drawing copy and a figure drawing from life you’ll become familiar with the Classical Drawing approach and how the theory translates into reality. You’ll develop your observational drawing skills and ability to recognise and prioritise the key information necessary to create strong well observed drawings.

Course Price £375, reserve your place with a £40 deposit, the remainder will be invoiced before the course.
