Outline: The course is for advanced students who have some prior knowledge of life drawing and would like the opportunity to take part in a structured series of drawing workshops designed to be supportive, challenging and tailored to the specific needs of the participants. Whilst, in theory, this is an advanced class Chris is happy to teach complete beginners providing they are up for a challenge and keen to extend their visual repertoire. Students may range from beginners to practicing artists and designers - some of whom may not have done any life drawing for a number of years and might like to refresh or update their skills. It is also a perfect course for those on Foundation courses who wish to build up their portfolios prior to applying for degree courses.

Each session is structured to provide an opportunity to produce a portfolio of lively creative drawings. The programme is designed to build confidence and broaden horizons.

Term 1 (Autumn): Media and Techniques

Term 2 (Spring): Form and Scale

Term 3(Summer): Mixed Media and Concepts
