Members visit the Keith Haring exhibition at Tate, Liverpool

Members on a recent visit to the Keith Haring art exhibition at Tate, Liverpool. We had a lecture before entering the exhibition, which was very enlightening and which prepared us for the works on show. Most of it deals with the big issues of his generation, working in New York in the 70's and 80's. These visits usually spark off ideas to members.

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

Held at the Bluecoat arts centre L1 3BX , Liverpool, Merseyside, Tuesday evenings. Commencing 5th October 2019 for 10 consecutive weeks.

Also at Lydiate L31 4HL (close to Maghull, Southport, Formby, Ormskirk,) all day Saturday. First Saturday of each month. 10am till 3.30pm

£28 per 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.
