What is Life Drawing?

Life drawing or figure drawing is the drawing with pencil, ink, charcoal, paint or whatever you choose of a figure from life. Most often associated with drawing the human form nude you can also draw clothed or our case costumed models. 

What is Costumed Life Drawing?

The biggest difference with costumed life drawing is that the model has clothes on, you will be able to see how material or armour clings to the body or how a sword held. For our classes we like to expand beyond the costume our model wear but bring a character to life for you to draw. 

Why do it?

There are many reasons to do life drawing. One of the most common reasons is that it will make you a better artist. By practicing your art, you can develop your skills, style and confidence. These relaxed classes will let you really focus in on the form in front of you and allow you to work on what interests you most. 

Do not 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.
