What we're about

What's the group for:
Life drawing drop-ins, life drawing courses and sculpting courses. This is a friendly and welcoming group for people of all abilities who are interested in practicing Life drawing and having access to both drop-ins and tutored sessions.
Among the options for life drawing there is a voucher system for the tutored sessions - so you buy vouchers then attend when you want. There are also single pose Saturdays - a new occasional drop-in session. And for those 3-D people there are short sculpture courses or workshops. Basically everything to do with working from figure. The sessions mainly take place at Yardley Arts in Yardley Hastings- in a beautiful light hall with high ceilings. There are excellent models and professional lighting for the sessions.

Introduction to sculpting: Sculpting a sketch ( 3 week course)

Yardley Arts CIC

£75.00

This is part of an Introduction to Sculpture: This is part of a short course will learn how to make small quick sketches in clay and sculpt directly from a life model. In the first session, using water-based modelling clay, we will sort the basics. Build an armature ( framework) looking at the proportion and structure of the figure and testing out the feel of different clay modelling materials, preparing 2 armatures for the following sessions. In the second and third sessions, using air drying clay, we will work directly from a life model to make two quick different figures. At the end of the three weeks you will come away with two small figure sculptures. 16 years and over. It will be a small group 12 max and lots of fun. Quite a rare opportunity to sculpt directly from the figure.
