‘The very high standard of work and skill development championed by the school is both refreshing and inspirational. I hope to return for a future experience and I have been left feeling inspired to push my painting. Thank you!’ I Banfield
This course is an ideal introduction for those new to the ’Sight-Size’ method, and an enjoyably intensive opportunity for those who would like to employ their current technique in a structured environment. Suitable for everyone, whatever you current skill, this is a great way to push your artistic ability to the next level.
The Easter school replicates the LARA full time course comprising of 3 hours of figure drawing and 3 hours of cast drawing each day. We adapt the teaching system to match your aptitude and progress throughout the ten days in order to create a uniquely challenging and satisfying experience. Whether you are just starting to learn the basics, or looking to be pushed into a higher level of proficiency, we are happy to help you achieve your aims.
Limited to 12 students per class (morning and afternoon groups) each student works within the main school of the atelier on their own cast drawing throughout the two week period. Rare in the UK, the figure model pose is sustained for the duration of the two weeks, providing you with the perfect opportunity to truly observe the figure and develop your drawing or painting.
The End Result
Each student leaves with a carefully observed and rendered cast drawing/painting and a strong figure drawing/painting having grasped the unique benefits of the sight size method.
We have a single week option available for those unable to attend for the full two weeks. However, if you would like to paint we highly recommend that you attend for the full two weeks. You will need to provide your own materials, a full list will be sent after booking confirmation.
