An afternoon workshop centred on longer poses, giving you plenty of time to create a series of rapid-response pieces or detailed work, portraits and more…

Working with a nude male model, we’ll begin the session with some quick warm-up poses. We’ll then settle into  some longer poses (1 x25 minutes pose, 1 x 40 minutes pose, 1 70 minutes pose), allowing you more time to look and respond…

Working with drawing, painting or mixed media, take the opportunity to develop your observational skills, focus on foreshortening, explore anatomy or venture into abstraction – the choice is yours.  A tutor will be hand to help you as required.
