Life Drawing with Tessa Houghton

Life Drawing with Tessa Houghton


This six week, fully tutored course offers an exploration into the various techniques and methods used to depict the human figure.

Working with a life model, each of the 6 sessions will focus on a different subject, for example: quick gestural drawings, Chiaroscurro (the study of light and dark tonal values), measured drawing or negative space.

You will:

• Learn how to use different drawing materials, including pencil, charcoal, graphite and chalk.
• Learn to draw from observation, from a range of short and long, model poses.
• Gain an understanding of the materials used.
• Use measuring to improve the proportion of drawings.
• Learn to create effective compositions.

Students will produce line drawings and tonal drawings. In some sessions we might do lots of quick drawings and in others we may produce just one or two longer drawings. The course is suitable for complete beginners or those with some experience who wish to hone their skills. No previous knowledge is required. A selection of basic drawing materials will be provided: e.g. paper, a range of pencils, charcoal, white chalk and erasers. Students are also welcome to bring their own materials if preferred.

This course is ideal for beginners, those returning to drawing after a period of time, and those looking to improve their current practice.
