Course Description

This two hour Life Drawing Taster session is for anyone interested in drawing or painting the human figure. Working from a live model in drawing medium of your choice. There will be 5-minute breaks for the model and a 15-minute refreshment break.

What will I learn?

By means of careful observation and helpful discussion you will learn how to depict the unclothed human figure, on paper, using pencil or pastel. The tutor will give short demonstrations in various techniques showing how to measure proportions of the figure and create a 3-dimensional effect. Students will receive one-to-one support throughout the session.

Alternatively, you may be interested in progressing onto a government-subsidised course or qualification. We recommend that you speak to your tutor or look on our website for further opportunities.

Additional support?

Financial support is not available for learners attending LeisureStream courses. If you feel that you need a course where support is available, we run a wide range of government supported courses that would be more suitable.

On LeisureStream courses, the cost of extra support in class is £11 per hour, and this would be paid for by the individual learner or shared between a group of learners requiring support in a class. This will be discussed with you at the time when you apply for extra support. We can also, at your own cost, arrange assessments for Dyslexia Screening.
