About this course

Learn how to draw the human form. The course will explore a range of drawing concepts including proportion, scale, modelling of form, the figure in space, perspective and foreshortening. You will use a range of drawing media, e.g. pencil, charcoal, ink, and consider the formal elements of line and tone in your work. The model will be posed nude.

Produce life studies that demonstrate an awareness of scale, perspective and proportion.
Experiment with different drawing materials to extend your range of options.
Recognise the styles and techniques of fine artists who have worked from the human form.
Work to health and safety guidelines.

There is no homework requirement for this course.

How will I be taught?

Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will look at the work of contemporary and historical artists and you will keep a sketchbook/notebook and individual learning plan (ILP) to record goals, ideas, processes and progress. Students will need to understand the potential benefit from the programme of study, read and interpret ideas, communicate responses that are clear, logical and understandable and manage your own time. You will undertake critical reflection and evaluation and be motivated to develop creative skills and enhance/develop personal skills.

What do I need to bring with me?

If you are a new student and have no materials please wait for your tutor's advice on what to buy. However, all students should bring an A4 sketchbook of good quality cartridge paper, preferably with a hard cover and ring bound, and a variety of pencils. You will need to provide your own materials and these will vary in cost according to the course requirements. Some of our centres have their own ‘shops' where you are able to buy materials at competitive prices. If you have any materials/equipment that might be appropriate please bring them with you.

What can I do next?

Courses are designed to progress students to higher levels of the craft and also to support application to Access to Art and Degree Foundation courses or relevant Craft, Art and Design Degree courses.

What do I need to join the course

Beginners and those with some experience of drawing from the life model. It is important to note that art courses are practical and require a degree of manual dexterity.
