drawing studio

The act of drawing is a fundamental human activity and a timeless means of communicating. Drawing connects what we see with how we think. It allows us to experiment with and explore the world within ourselves and around us. It is a medium through which we may learn to see anew. Drawing is the most direct and simple means we have to express ourselves visually – to design and to make art. Learned drawing skills and conventions form a fundamental visual language that is considered essential for all artists, designers and, indeed, for all of us living in an increasingly visual culture. Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking and Digital Imaging and Design media all have drawing skills as an essential requirement.

Life Drawing 
DR-001

The human form has been an important subject in drawing today since the beginning of art itself and is still considered a fundamental artistic and creative activity. Many great artists have devoted their entire creative lives to painting, sculpting and drawing the human figure.
 
The life drawing classes will cater for all levels of artistic experience. Group discussions and constructive critical analysis of drawings will be important components of the course.
 
It is possible to teach and learn about visual elements and principles relevant to all aspects of art and design through different approaches to life drawing. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to develop individual style, competency and an appreciation of drawing and its expressive potential in a relaxed, non-competitive manner.

Contemporary Drawing
DR-004

Begin a profound journey of self-discovery towards a personal drawing consciousness and 'language' that is unique to the individual that you are. Contemporary drawing is about how we draw, not only what we draw. Choices and intentions guide the approach to, and use of, concepts and media.
 
This course is open to students at any level, each working at their own pace and ability.
 
Experimentation, imagination, conceptualisation and personal expression help students gain insight into their individual approach and process, focusing in on a journey of discovery, and not the final product.
 
Participants will leave the course with greater understanding and awareness of the abstract, formal, and conceptual approaches that comprise contemporary drawing.
