1 Summerhall, EH9 1PL Edinburgh, United Kingdom
I'm delighted to be putting on a run of four tutored life drawing classes with expert artists from each topic!

This first one begins at one of the most fundamental hurdles of drawing the figure: gesture. This means describing that the person is DOING — and forgetting the itty bitty details of what they look like — in favour of conveying some of the energy, weight, and general human-ness of their form. For this session we welcome the ultimate queen of gestural life drawing tutoring — Jill (Lookand Draw) from Look & Draw Workshops. Never again will you be faced with a blank piece of paper and not know where to begin! After an introductory slide show looking at gestural drawing in art history, Jill will demonstrate techniques to get you drawing FAST and without the time to be self-critical. Leave them apprehensions at the door- we look forward to welcoming you in.

To give you time to stuck in properly, these tutored sessions are 2 hours 15mins: 7pm -9.15pm at Summerhall's Anatomy Lecture Theatre. You're welcome to bring a bevvy in with you from the bar — alcoholic or non. (Brownie points for bringing a keep cup!). The ticket price for these sessions includes materials but feel free to bring your own favoured paraphernalia. We welcome all ages and stages. Any questions just ping me a message!

Booking is advised — not essential — but there is a wee discount if you buy in advance and even more of a discount if you'd like to buy the block of four. There's a supplement of £2 for the clay class to cover the more expensive materials.

On the door: £10/8
In advance (online or in person): £9/7
Block of 4: £32/24

Looking forward to welcoming you
