Enjoy an exclusive life drawing session for Friends and Academicians’ Room members in the historic Sir Hugh Casson Room, concentrating on the expression of balance in art.

A figure must look rooted and balanced if it is to have a convincing sense of weight and mass. Using a series of short and sustained poses, participants will explore methods and techniques to express a feeling of ‘contrapposto’. This session will focus on how to determine and represent the standing figure’s line and centre of balance.

Whether you are a regular participant, would like to hone your skills or try life drawing for the first time, these three-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.
