Friends and Academicians’ Room members: Life drawing – finding the balance
An exclusive opportunity for Friends and Academicians’ Room members to enjoy monthly life-drawing sessions in the Sir Hugh Casson Room, designed to be both rewarding and fun. This month’s session concentrates on expressing balance.
A figure must look rooted and balanced to have a convincing sense of mass and weight. Using a series of short and more sustained poses, this session will explore systems to express a feeling of contrapposto. Determining the line of balance in a series of standing poses will be the chief issue under investigation.
To book, please call 020 7300 8090. Friends of the RA can also book online from Wednesday 10 October 2018.
