Life drawing or painting with a difference! If you enjoy life drawing and would like a challenge this is the course for you. Working life size over four days onto large sheets of Fabriano cartridge paper (suitable for both wet and dry media) you will be encouraged to produce one or more expressive drawings or paintings of the model. Experience of life drawing is necessary.

Enjoy the challenges of working from the life model to produce up to 1/2 life size figures or smaller. Larger figures will be coil built without an armature allowing easy firing. This intensive course allows an opportunity for those with experience in modelling to push their work further, while the less experienced or complete beginner will be given plenty of guidance throughout. Work will be fired once dry to be collected at a later date.

Have fun creating a large weatherproof sculpture for your garden (figure, animal or abstract). Working from your own ideas, you will begin by constructing an armature cut and modeled in polystyrene, followed by a layer of jesmonite ( a fume free user friendly material). Working further with jesmonite to model surface forms and detail before colouring and sealing the finished piece.
