Tutored life drawing: Clay

  • Summerhall 1 Summerhall Place Edinburgh, Scotland, EH9 1PL United Kingdom (map)

I'm delighted to be putting on a course of five tutored life drawing classes with expert artists from each topic - looking at clay, quick drawings, proportion, tone, and colour. Each one is standalone, or you may book all five different classes as a block (at a discount).

This session is led by the esteemed Duncan Robertson, who tutors at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and the National Gallery. Clay is DELICIOUS - it slips and slides under your fingers in a most sensual way. Duncan will take us through the practicalities of working with clay - and how to begin capturing the mass and form of the figure whilst keeping proportion. You may find your drawing radically changes after the challenge of thinking about the body in three dimensions. The clay is air-drying - and please bring a tupperware or box to take it home with you.
