This course, catering for students of all abilities in our light and airy Fine Art Studio, seeks to provide a platform for experimentation within life drawing, stimulating imagination and enhancing skills. The goal is to build confidence and provide students with the tools to develop their observations and drawing abilities.
During the seven weeks you will explore techniques to aid tackling form, shape, line, proportions and the use of tone within the drawing process; perceiving, creating and presenting a drawn dialogue.
In our day-to-day lives, we rarely pay attention to the variety of shapes and forms our bodies make as we move. Consciously or not, we perform. Pausing and reflecting on how we go, where we go is a journey of discovery. Media will include drawing (pencils, graphite, charcoal and ink) and a plethora of traditional and new mark-making techniques; moderately referring to further painting, printing and collage. All courses will involve both group and individual tuition.
Tutor: Alex Roberts is a British artist that lives and works between Berlin and the UK. She is an artist who works with paint and translucence; addressing paintings’ surface and spatial depth. Testing the sliding scale of figuration and abstraction, her focus is how we perceive identity and change – encounters. Roberts completed her MAFA at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL, 2015. In 2016, Roberts joined The Transart Institute as an Artist Advisor, along with helping establish an on-going drawing programme about the figure, besides linking platforms of exchange at Drawing Projects UK.
