Life Drawing: Invigoration Through Solitude
A course with Artist John Close @JohnCloseArts

From Leonardo to Vincent, from Michelangelo to Matisse- solitude makes artists, it forges them in fire.

Prepare for some seriously investigative life drawing!
Join London Drawing Tutor John Close for an exciting new four week life drawing course that will allow you to dig deep into the minds of great artists to develop your own artistic language-

With influences such as Rubens, Joshua Reynolds and Frans Hals, each lesson will place the life model in a unique context, using examples of art history to suggest approaches to the figure. Themes such as anatomy, composition and narrative will be explored through our dynamic and interpretive models.

This is a great course for developing your artistic knowledge and so will also have potential for developing individual projects beyond the weekly session.

Art references, help sheets and personal feedback will be offered to support beginners and advanced students- this is an opportunity to work from home in a way that energises your practice.

Artists through history have lived in isolation- in bedrooms, prisons, exile and madness. It is in this restriction where the spirit can thrive!

Class Format-
2 hours working from the online model.
30 minutes group feedback session, where students participate in group discussion as well as an option to present life drawings or any other drawing/painting projects for feedback

Sundays 7/ 14/ 21/ 28 March 
1.30pm – 4pm GMT
Materials not included

Materials list:
Some good quality paint and brushes of your choice (acrylic/ gouache/ oils)
John will make recommendations as the course progresses according to your practice
