Observational drawing

Basic Information

We are constantly gathering visual information but our eyes are looking yet not seeing. Drawing from life or ‘observation’ drawing involves seeing more precisely and more directly in order to translate a 3d environment onto the surface of our paper.

This drawing course is an exploration of traditional and contemporary drawing practices involving drawing from life and is for students of all levels. It is designed to give students a sound grounding in the discipline to extend the boundaries of conventional mediums and approaches and develop a personal creative expression and artistic idiom.

The course will evolve from still life to more complex subjects like figure drawing and will involve both detailed studies as well as exciting experimental drawing exercises. The following topics will be employed for the students to gain a complete understanding of drawing:

In this course we aim to provide and nurture the confidence and skill set needed to gain proficiency and fluency in the subject. We also provide the space for guided practice, a good practice being the cornerstone of mastering a practical subject like Drawing.
