Workshop: Life Drawing

Life drawing is a foundation skill in which students gain experience sketching and drawing the human figure from a live model.

Starting with shorter, changing poses for compositional practice, and moving into longer held poses, this 2.5 hour workshop gives a variety of studio experience in this important skill.

Under the expert tuition of Alison Percy students will gain confidence and learn to see the human form like an artist.

This workshop is suitable for both beginners and experienced drawers alike, with personal tuition and guidance for all levels of experience.

The workshop is an excellent option for art students wishing to add life drawing to their art portfolio.

We use a diverse range of bodies and gender identities for our life drawing course. All clothing is removed by the model for the duration of the session.

The session is fully supervised by an experienced tutor.

Students under the age of 18 will need parental consent to participate.

All materials provided.

Meet the Tutor: Alison Percy

Alison's work reflects a fascination in the balance and sensitivity of fluid line inspired by natural forms across figurative, landscape and floral subjects. Imagery is formed using ink, charcoal, acrylic paint, soft pastel and watercolour onto canvas and paper. A quiet energy is felt during mark making, allowing the work to take on a layered and reflective journey. Intuitive use of fluid line and colour evokes an honest connection through the artist and onto the surface.

Alison's energetic and passionate nature is evident across her work. It reflects a delight in transforming observations, captured or remembered images into figurative, landscape or floral works. Alison produces paintings and drawings for exhibition, private sale and commission.

As a tutor, students are encouraged to relax and enjoy the journey - while exploring their individual style and learning to really see.
