Trainee teacher sessions: life drawing
Make art in a relaxed environment at this informal practical session specifically designed for trainee teachers.
This workshop will investigate the myriad ways that drawing has been taught and utilised in the Royal Academy Schools over the last 250 years. Encounter drawing from the antique and an introduction to anatomical drawing, then tackle your own life drawing exercises in the Schools’ historic life drawing room.
The session will begin with a series of creative exercises intended to highlight historical techniques that you can incorporate into your teaching practice and approach.
These informal practical sessions are specifically designed for trainee teachers. Each workshop will include discussions around how to formulate ideas and take them back to the classroom. They are also an opportunity to meet other people studying to be teachers and to make art.
Mark Hampson is an artist and Head of Fine Art Processes at the RA Schools. His artworks merge digital and handmade narrative approaches using combinations of invented and appropriated imagery that create new histories, often of a comic nature. Drawn manipulations of both portraiture and the body are central to his mutant artistic imagery.
