LIFE DRAWING CLASSES, for both absolute beginners and those more advanced.

Held at the Bluecoat arts centre L1 3BX , Liverpool, Merseyside, Tuesday evenings. Also at Lydiate L31 4HL (close to Maghull, Southport, Formby, Ormskirk,) all day Saturday.

Both classes are tutored and are structured to teach from the very basics, starting with how to measure the figure to achieve correct proportions. At Lydiate, because it's an all day Saturday class, members are able to use a variety of media, including paints.

Why is life drawing so important?

I run several life-drawing classes on Merseyside including Southport. I also do a Tuesday evening life drawing class(beginners and the more advanced) at the Bluecoat art centre, Liverpool. Please contact me for further details. Also at Lydiate L31 4HL, the first Saturday of each month. This is an all day session. Cost £28. I've been doing life-drawing and figurative painting courses for a number of years and the combined groups have now grown into a very lively art group where people come together to not only learn about doing art, but also as a social activity.

Life-drawing and figurative work is the key to painting. Why? Because it forces you to observe and to measure accurately! I have taught many students life-drawing. Life drawing is the key to drawing and painting because you need to develop a measuring system so you can achieve correct proportions. It pays back enormous dividends for the rest of your life. If you can draw the figure, then I believe you can draw any subject. Believe it or not, even people who know nothing about art, if shown a drawing or a painting of the nude, will immediately see if the figure isn’t drawn to the correct proportions! They will sense that something is not quite right. On the other hand, if shown a painting of a landscape they were unfamiliar with, half the painting could be out of proportion and it wouldn’t be obvious.

Taster session, especially for beginners!

Will take place at Lydiate L31 4HL, Saturday 20th July 2019

Fee £20. Times: 10am till 3pm

To book, and for more details, please contact me.
