About this event

Beginners/Refresher s

10-week course - starts Tuesday 26th April

Who are BOW?

Body of Work Life Drawing, are two successful Fife based women artists, Jennifer Robson and Kirsty Whiten, who worked together during lockdown to create an online life drawing course that inspires, encourages and nurtures students of life drawing.

They have created two online courses including Refreshers/Beginners and Anatomy for Art in collaboration with anatomist Dr Susan Whiten. They are currently creating their third course this Spring. They also host regular tutored in person life drawing courses and day workshops.

BOW Refreshers/Beginners is a comprehensive life drawing course that covers all the basics, making a start, mark making, proportions and measuring, line, tone, materials, expression, style and loosening up. You also get not one but two practicing artists sharing their unique process and approach to life drawing.

How do I access the course?

You will receive a link to your inbox to a folder containing 10 video tutorials from artist tutors, and 10 sets of model videos, allowing you to learn and practice all the basic skills of life drawing all at your own pace, at home, in your own time.

You get ten weeks access to allow your to complete the course. There is no set class time, you work through the vids any time that suits you with access 24/7 so you can watch, rewatch and redo as often as you please. An incredible resource for Artists.

Is it right for me?

BOW refreshers/beginners is suitable for anyone who loves life drawing. If you feel rusty and want to get back into life drawing or intimidated about drawing from observation, this course eases you back into it and reminds you of all the basics. It's also great if you're a complete beginner who doesn't know where to start, it's all covered - this course is an excellent confidence builder.

10 weeks of BOW insights, demonstrations, and practice will take your drawing to the next level!

'Brilliant course with talented, inspiring, compassionate tutors. I would never have had the courage to do a life class 'in the flesh' with others around me as I am an anxious beginner with more patience than skill or natural talent.

I can work at my own pace with lots of breaks and hope to improve my skills to the level of others who share their amazing work.

Thank you Kirsty and Jen, talented artists and excellent teachers; a rare combination. '

' Thank you both so much for this.

I was a little nervous paying so much for this upfront as I've dipped my wee toe into some life drawing since I began again last summer, including some subscription content, and this has been of the highest quality.

I'm not an artist, I'm a full time nurse and I really just do this to relax and make myself happy, but I'm ever hopeful of getting better.

It's so great to be able to replay the poses a few times.

Looking forward to benefitting from your experience and drawing more human less potato looking figures. '

' Great class again last Monday. I’ve just caught up now and have included my efforts. Busy week.

I thought the introductory video was inspiring. I never appreciated life drawing was such a discipline in itself. Also as an expression of oneself and emotions.

I also found the intro to the graphite and charcoal really helpful.'
