At Contemporary Realistic Drawing this evening the class were drawing a spoon. Can you spot any self portraits?
Mixed media pieces: collage, ink and emulsion paint.
The last ‘Life into the Figure’ session this term ended up with an evening of monoprinting from the figure. A wee taster of the printing life class which will run in the new year.
Life Printing is a 6 week course working directly from a life model in the studio to create unique prints.
Each session will concentrate on a different approach to engaging with the human figure and you will experiment with monoprinting and linocut techniques as a way of developing your drawing skills and your understanding of colour and composition.
If you can’t wait that long there are still have a couple of spaces remaining on the next Drink & Draw session at The Safari Lounge.
Next 5 week ‘Contemporary Realistic Drawing’ session will run in the new year on Wednesday afternoons. More Info
We loved our visit to Surgeons Hall yesterday for a day of sketching. The day was filled with quick drawing exercises designed to get the group really looking at the exhibits. A class not for the faint hearted as the drawing below depict skeletons, amutated limbs, a tongue in a jar and a pickled frog. Enjoy!
Last session of Experimental Printmaking was led by Lorna Johnstone, who taught the class how to create these beautiful etchings using take away lids and make shift etching tools suchs as scewers, nails and scalpels.
I am excited to announce that from January 2018, Look and Draw will be expanding its program of classes and workshops to include a second venue on the other side of the city.
From 2018 some classes will run from Abbeymount Studios in Abbeyhill.
On Saturday afternoons throughout February Cat Bruce will be hosting another animation workshop in this new space. Students will create simple hand-drawn animation loops using historical animation techniques. More Info
