Drawing demonstration and practical workshop
With Artist Lucy Corbett
For adults aged 16+
In this one-off masterclass, join artist Lucy Corbett to learn about the ‘sight size method’, a method in which the artist makes a drawing the same height as the subject being rendered, as it would appear on either the left or right of the drawing board.
You will learn to draw a still life in charcoal using the sight size method, and how to render the form to create a three dimensional image from life. Following on from this, set your newfound experience to use in an afternoon of practical exercises. Lucy will also be available to offer advice on your own projects.
£35, No experience necessary. All materials provided
