What can students expect?

<p><span style="font-size:16px">Working from a different model each week (clothed, nude and portrait), you will develop skills in drawing figures and faces, their shape and proportions, light and shade.  You will use a range of traditional drawing media and explore various approaches and techniques. The tutor will sometimes give an initial short demonstration, especially when you embark on using an unfamiliar technique. The models’ poses will be of longer duration than most of those in Bill’s Life Drawing courses. This course is suitable for people who have done a little drawing from life before.</span></p>
