Friends and Academicians’ Room Members life drawing: figure in tension
Enjoy an exclusive life drawing session for Friends and Academicians’ Room members in the Sir Hugh Casson Room, concentrating on the representation of muscle groups.
Participants will be challenged to find marks which express tension and dramatise surface form. Our professional life models will take up a series of short poses where the skin is stretched over flexed and well-defined muscles, creating a counterpoint to more relaxed areas of the body. Weight and rhythm in your mark-making will be the chief issue under investigation.
Whether you are a regular, would like to hone your skills or try life drawing for the first time, these 3-hour regular and immersive sessions – taught by expert teacher and practising artist Mick Kirkbride – are a wonderful way to experience life drawing in a supportive and friendly environment.
This event is open to Friends of the RA, RA250 Friends and RA250 Supporters, and members of the Academicians’ Room only.
