Join Pauline Agnew on her first course here at the Jeanne Oliver Creative Network!
‘Education is the lighting of a fire not the filling of a pail’ – WB Yeats
Do you remember the joy you got from drawing yourself, your family, your friends, as a child? You were not worried about the anatomical accuracy of the face or body, you were telling a story. The human body is a joy to draw and paint when you approach it with a sense of childlike curiosity and wonder, and avoid getting too caught up in realism.
Join me as I teach you how to engage your senses during the creative process, just like you did as a child. Together we will create a series of expressive mixed media figure drawings.
Using simple materials – charcoal, ink, watercolors etc; and several exciting and very specific exercises, you will be empowered to draw the figure with confidence. and above all, with feeling. I will also show you how Master artists use these exact same techniques that I will share with you, to create figure drawings that are deeply engaging and full of life.
You can expect to come away from this Ecourse with several rewarding ways to distill and capture the essence of the human body on paper, and a portfolio of figure drawings that might just surprise you!
*This course is suitable for all levels from the total beginner, to college graduates looking for a fresh approach.
