Topolski Life Drawing on London's South Bank - Tues eveningshttp://www.meetup.com/Topolski-Studio-Life-Drawing-Workshop/http://photos1.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/5/1/8/8/global_263420872.jpeg20130709
Sessions run on a monthly rota. Starting on 28th April with a Moving Pose, then a Themed Pose, an Anatomy Class and a long pose based on a Grand Master painting or sculpture. Please see our website and posts for updated information for each type of class.
Rather than just another forum for depicting the nude, our meetings are designed as a gender sensitive community that welcomes all people, from art students to enthusiasts to professionals, who wish to hone and refresh their graphic knowledge of the human form.
Nestled in the intimate setting of Feliks Topolski’s renovated Studio we seek to revive his commitment not only to continual drawing but also for throwing open his studio door and welcoming all intrigued with art-making to share in his passion. In ode to the technical rigour and classical training that enabled his fluid and prolific sketching, our classes dissect aspects of capturing the body in a number of contexts so that participants can confidently extend their practice beyond the studio.
Tuition emphasises hands-on experimentation guided by short demonstrations that explore techniques for looking as well as different stylistic solutions deployed throughout the history of art. No one style or naturalism is propounded, but all are welcome to play and experiment as we examine the mechanics of the body and artistic eye alike.
