Book up these taught life drawing/making classes at the rather wonderful Hornbeam Cafe in Walthamstow:
LIFE CLASSES UPSTAIRS at the HORNBEAM on SUNDAY AFTERNOONS from 3 to 5 pm.
Artists of all abilities are very welcome, and booking is essential as space is limited. This is a superb opportunity to make original art in front of a life model – just sign up for any week you like. Why not have a delicious lunch (or brunch) at the cafe downstairs first to make it a special Sunday?
You only have to bring yourself (and a sketchbook if you wish to take notes) as all materials will be provided.
These classes will be taught using this philosophy about teaching art:
“I teach a language, not just how to copy – copying is certainly a skill, but each artist needs to do something rich and rhythmic with their ability. My approach, using led exercises ensures that both the teacher and the students are always on the edge of discovering something new. We are all in it together, for the first time. Art, like language, has a structure, a pattern, a syntax and the common strands in visual experience can be taught and learnt. It is up to the individual to use that language with the infinite variety of individual expression. This is a liberating approach: we all might not have the skills or inspiration of a great master, but everyone who really wants to draw, can begin to make a connection between their inner and outer worlds and communicate through art.”
Every class starts with a short slideshow to introduce that week’s theme, followed by drawing exercises in a variety of media. Expect the unexpected ….
