think inside the box!

The Access students were asked to think ‘inside the box’ this week as they explored the sight size approach to life drawing. The Sight Size technique involves taking measurements from life using your pencil as a measuring guide.
Students made a bounding box which was proportionally accurate and used this as a guide to inform further measurements and their drawing as a whole. Students took inspiration from the Artist Euan Uglow who is famous for his carefully plotted figurative studies. A tough session but the results speak for themselves! Go Access, some really smart, proportionally considered drawing!

Anthony Gormley inspires

A recent Access Art and Design life drawing session was inspired by the work of Anthony Gormley.
Students were encouraged to work in ink to quickly responding to a moving model who threw silk scarves and ribbons about in the air. The resulting drawings exploit the haphazard qualities of the medium whilst generating an amazing sense of movement! With some very atmospheric results, well done!

A bright start to the Year!

AS Fine Art students returned to College after the Christmas festivities, but they were far from gloomy!

Instead of a grey January they are enjoying a bright start to the new year as we embark on two weeks of colour theory! Students are mixing an array of colours. During the first week students played the Coca-Cola game, attempting to mix that ubiquitous red from memory! An exercise developed by the artist and teacher Josef Albers!
