Course description:

Learn to draw from the human figure on our 6 week tutored life drawing course. The course will focus on developing observational drawing skills, effectively drawing proportions of the body and exploring different compositions. Students will produce line drawings and tonal drawings working from different nude models across the 6 weeks. Drawings will be produced from a range of long and short model poses and drawing exercises. You’ll gain an understanding of using different materials such as pencil, graphite, charcoal and pastel.

Who is the course for?

The course is aimed at beginners or those who wish to develop their drawing ability. Students with previous experience can use the model and materials to practise and improve with tutor advice and guidance.


Do I need to bring anything?

The Art House will provide paper, easels, the tutor and the model for each class. You will need to bring a variety of drawing materials along with you such as pencils (HB, 2B and 4B), chalk, charcoal and graphite sticks.

Your Tutor

Bess Martin is an artist and life model with professional training in drawing and painting and a degree in Contemporary Art Practices. A technician, workshop leader, facilitator and creative all-rounder, Bess currently works freelance supporting cultural organisations and artists with funding, administration processes, technical design, making and installation. Bess lives in Leeds and works predominantly in West Yorkshire.

Bess attended her first ever life drawing session at just 12 years old and instantly fell in love with the art room! Ten years later she decided to be brave and started to life model for classes herself as a way to learn more about the tensions of the body and to aid her own drawing skills. Another ten years on and she has drawn at and modelled for a huge variety of classes, picking up a mixture of both classic and unique techniques that can be applied by even the least confident or experienced artist.
