Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

We have a rare opportunity to study and to draw from the works of Edgar Degas that have never been exhibited in London before! You are welcome to join the lecture about the artist followed by drawing session under the guidance of a professional artist. With all materials provided, you are looking to have a great time and to take your complete drawing home. See how similar would it be to the hand of the great master!

The class is suitable to all levels.

Our small group will each choose an artwork to copy from, we will look closely at the composition, lighting, and colour application following the great master; will try charcoal and pastels - his favourite mediums.

Sketching encourages us to slow down, to look carefully, and to connect with works of art.

You will learn about Modernism, the Impressionists, the bohemian vibrant social life of Paris at the end of the 19th century that quickly becomes the subject matter of the artists. This is a trully wonderful period in the art history when life and art merged into one.

The session is lead by Anastasia Belous, an art historian (Christie's Education, UCL), and working artist. The group size is small and will allow the lecturer to guide each participant individually in their sketching practice.

All sketching materials provided.

We look forward to be welcoming you on this exciting study trip!
