Taught Life Drawing Course – 6 Weeks

with Eimhin Mc Namara
50 EUR

This 6 week course aims to rid your arms of cobwebs and flex up some serious observational muscle!

The first half of each class will involve a lot of short poses, working on speed and energy in your drawing, incorporating resistance exercises to improve observation and drawing ability, such as gesture, blind, bamboo-stick and wrong-handed drawing. In the second half of each class you will have free reign to apply what you have learned over 2-3 longer poses. We will be using a number of different media, such as charcoal, pastels and ink.


When?

Monday 7-9pm
4th Sep –  9th Oct

Where?
A4 Sounds
St Joseph’s Parade, Off Upper Dorset St
