Sunday Life
– Life Drawing for Young Creatives: April 2016

Artists lead these life-drawing classes specifically developed for young adults. Our professional models bring dance, performance, costume and other unique elements to the class. This months model is Mac Galleon, 'Brolesque’ performer and model.

What is Life Drawing?
Life Drawing is the term used to describe drawing the human body – from life (as opposed to from a photograph!) using your own skills in observation. Models are partially or completely unclothed so that the anatomical structure of the body can be recognized more clearly.

Why do it?
Life Drawing is one of the basic, core skills of an artist.
Life Drawing teaches you how to see and then how to draw what you see.The practice of Life Drawing enables you to develop your own, unique style of drawing.

Cultivate your technique and skills each month in these dynamic and fun classes for young people aged 14 – 19yrs. All materials provided.

Sun 17 April 2016, 2 – 4pm
$20 Booking required
Level 3 Creative Studios, NCCL
