BIG Drawing Saturday

About BIG Drawing Saturday

We will begin with an early morning life drawing session looking at movement. Drawing a dancer as they transition from pose to pose in a continuous flow. These poses will be short and aimed at helping our drawers find the rhythm of the poses from one to the next, experiencing less control of line in hopes of finding new and exciting ways of exploring form and markmaking.

We will follow up with a series of medium length poses, and these poses will be parts of a broader idea (which as drawers, you will be encouraged to explore) of representing the model and the space they occupy as they move from pose to pose. This session is designed not only to help the drawer realise a full composition but also help them become aware of space and the importance it has both on the page and all around them.

We will then finish the day with a non-stop 2-hour pose with two models allowing you to put what you have learned into practice.
You will be able to spend the full 2 hours drawing from one pose featuring two models.
Both models will take alternating breaks so there will always be a model present and this is to encourage drawers to work on a whole composition of two models rather than focus on just one.

The times are as followed.

10:00 - 12:00 Movement with Dancer
13:00 - 15:00 Composition - Matisse's Dancers
16:00 - 18:00 Long pose with Duet

You may come to one, two or all three sessions.
All levels and experience are encouraged and welcome. Should you wish to have help or use the time as your own, we are here to help!

Necessary Materials will be available, but you may bring your own.
There will be boards and seats for everyone, but if you wish to bring in an Easel, you are more then welcome to do so.

Tickets available at www.citizenticket.co.uk

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for BIG Drawing Saturday are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
