Schools & Colleges: Portfolio Development: Life Drawing

14 Jan - 16 Jan 2019

Suitable for Year 11 & 13 / Level 1 & 2 Art Students

Bring your class to the gallery to study life drawing. Maximum 15 students per school.

Students will study Barbara Hepworth’s artwork in the gallery and investigate the figure and body in her artwork. After making individual observational drawings, students will study the figure and body within the contemporary exhibitions on display at The Hepworth Wakefield.

Working in the studio, students will work with a live model to develop life drawing skills and an understanding of proportion and artistic process.

Students will have a range of drawings to take away and display in their portfolios.
