Friends and Academicians’ Room members life drawing: using tone
An exclusive opportunity to enjoy monthly life-drawing sessions for Friends and Academicians’ Room members in the Sir Hugh Casson Room, designed to be both rewarding and fun. These practical sessions provide expert-led tuition in a social and welcoming environment. This month’s session concentrates on the use of tone in drawing from life.
This session will explore using black and white chalk on toned paper. The paper will act as a mid-tone and white chalking as a highlight. We will use shorter poses in the first instance, to express a more gestural response. The poses will then become more sustained, to allow for a more honed approach.
Our courses and classes programme
Our varied programme of short courses and classes provides an opportunity to explore subjects ranging from life drawing to the history of exhibitions and arts management, led by expert tutors and practising artists. These courses introduce traditional art-making processes, as well as perspectives on art history, theory, business and trade. Read more about courses and classes
