Friends and Academicians’ Room members: life drawing – composition
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 composition.
In this life-drawing session, participants will look at how to place a figure on a page so it looks balanced in the space. Notions of spatial context will be considered, and how you will consider to best divide the pictorial space, including the use of an aperture as a composition aid. Poses will vary in length and orientation.
Whether you are a regular participant, would like to hone your skills or want to 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.
