Description

<p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">A short course for people who want to learn to draw figures and faces, and those who would like to get better at it! Using pencil or/and charcoal, you will learn to draw figures and faces from photographs in sessions 1 and 2 and from a clothed model in the third. </span></span></span></p>

<p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><strong><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">A model fee of £6 to be paid in cash to the tutor at the beginning of the first session.  This course will be delivered at Stoke Lodge.</span></strong></span></span></p>

What can students expect?

<p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">During the course you will cover:</span></span></span></p>

<p> </p>

<ul>
<li><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><strong><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">Session 1.</span></strong><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">  Proportions of the human body and angles of limbs. You will draw figures from photographs of dancers, gymnasts, and athletes</span></span></span></li>
<li><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><strong><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">Session 2</span></strong><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">. Proportions of the head and how draw a face from different angles. Working from photographs, you will draw faces in front-view, side-view, and three-quarter view</span></span></span></li>
<li><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><strong><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">Session 3.</span></strong><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif"> Drawing from a live, clothed model.</span></span></span></li>

<p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">The focus will be on drawing figures. Faces will be simplified-we will not have time for the detail needed for portraiture. For example, the turn or tilt of the head will be viewed as more important than a particular kind of nose or mouth.</span></span></span></p>

Late starters allowed?

<p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">It is a short course, so it is best to attend all 3 sessions to benefit in full.</span></span></span></p>

Previous experience required?

<p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:&#34;Times New Roman&#34;,serif"><span style="font-family:&#34;Arial&#34;,sans-serif">This course is for beginners and those with some experience who would like to improve their skills.</span></span></span></p>
