Event description
Relaxed and informal introduction to Life Drawing suitable for all levels.

About this Event

This one day workshop is designed to be a relaxed and informal introduction to Life Drawing suitable for total beginners or more confident drawers. Life Drawing has always been an important part of an artist’s training because it hones our ability to correctly assess and understand proportion, shape and form.

During the morning there will be lots of short poses, quick sketching exercises and focused tuition. The emphasis will be on quantity not quality – expect lots of drawing!

During the afternoon the poses will be longer and you will have time to add light and shade to your sketches with charcoal and chalk.

Expect a full day of drawing and learning!

Materials, tea and coffee are provided. The group will go out for lunch for an hour (not included in price).

Please note: this session needs a minimum of 8 people for the workshop to take place. Participants will be fully refunded if this happens.

Your Tutor – Beccy Roberts

Beccy has been a traditional Sign Writer, Sign Painter & Folk Artist for 25+ years. Working originally for the large Breweries; Bass, Everards and M&B where she specialised in painting Pictorial Pub Signs.

During the late 90’s to escape from the rapid growth of computer cut vinyl graphics and digital images she started working on the canal system painting the names on traditional narrowboats and producing a wide range of hand painted barge ware.

For the last 6 years Beccy has worked as an Art Tutor at The Percival Guildhouse in Rugby teaching a variety of classes – sculpture, watercolours, oils, acrylics & drawing. She has also taught Art classes at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry Museum & Art Gallery, Compton Verney Gallery & Rugby Art Gallery.
