The traditional practice of life drawing brings an understanding of proportion, teaches observation and trains the eye. During this inspiring day with artist Stuart Whitehead you will:

– Enjoy the experience of drawing the figure from life
– Work through different approaches to drawing the human figure
– Experiment with different materials
– Learn how happy accidents can enliven your drawing

Cost includes life model fees but there is a material charge of £5 for paper, charcoal etc.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!

What you’ll need to bring with you

You will need to wear old clothing or an apron. We will be using a variety of media but if you do have your own compressed or willow charcoal, rubber, pencils which you usually use etc, then please do bring them along.
