About this Course

Working directly from life you will explore the various techniques and methods used to depict the human form. The course is suitable for anyone wanting to learn and develop their observational and interpretive drawing skills. Beginners are welcome, as are those wishing to refresh their drawing skills or strengthen their drawing portfolios.

 

Course Content

Over the duration of the course we will explore topics such as composition, scale, proportion, movement and line. You will be able to work at your own pace whilst being encouraged to experiment with different materials and techniques. Throughout the course, we will also look at a range of contemporary and historical artists.

What you will achieve

By the end of the course you will have produced a series of drawings experimenting with a variety of materials and techniques.

Progression/Career Path

After this course you can either progress onto a Foundation/Degree course here at Northbrook College or enrol to another ACL course to develop your ideas and skills further.

Other Costs

Please bring with you to the first session: Good quality A1 cartridge paper (minimum 6 sheets), a sketchbook, putty rubber, charcoal and/or chalk, fixative spray (cheap hairspray will do) and a roll of masking tape. Feel free to bring additional drawing materials/tools if you wish.
