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!
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!
Breeze Art and Makers Fair CIC has a mission to get young people to explore the possibilities of training and a career in design and craft. On Friday our students enjoyed a series of presentations by makers at different points in their careers who told their stories of how they discovered making and how they learned their skills.
The students heard from –
The results of the second day of the oil painting workshop speak for themselves! We were so impressed with the progress all of our students made under the expert tutelage of Carol. Most students had never worked in oils and it was extremely inspiring to witness there fearlessness and ambition in approaching their task. The room was awash with vibrant colour, however you could have heard a pin drop, such was the concentration! Well… if that’s what our students can achieve after only two days, we have a real treat in store over the coming months!
We must again express our gratitude to Carol, whose professionalism, gentle humour, knowledge, warmth and enthusiasm for our students progress made each day a sheer pleasure!
