Workshops // Coming up // Costume Life Drawing: Fantasy
20 May

Costume Life Drawing: Fantasy

Take a short trip to Middle Earth with your chance to draw models in costumes inspired by Tolkien’s fantasy world. 

This two-hour untutored session will offer a range of poses and models in a variety of costume. Make sure to bring along all your drawing supplies! 

This session is suitable for all ages and levels and a fab way to spend Saturday morning. Poses will last between 1-10mins.

Why do it?

There are many reasons to do life drawing, one of the most common reasons is the suggestion that it will make you a better artist.  True, practice can help you improve and develop skills and these sessions offer you a specific time to focus on creating art. Do not however be put off if you have never tried life drawing before, this can be your introduction. Maybe you are the next Da Vinci just waiting for the right moment.

What is Costumed Life Drawing?

The biggest difference with costumed life drawing to nude life drawing is that the model has clothes on, you will be able to see how it clings and fall on the body. In our case we are also expanding this to not only clothes on our model but also bring a character to life.
