Life drawing, also known as figure drawing, is the act of drawing a living person. Normally this means drawing a nude model in real life, however for this session there will be a fully clothed life model. Drawing clothed people allows you to create folds of clothing, adding character and themes to your drawings. There will be an opportunity to experiment with different mediums including: graphite, pen, charcoal and chalk. Life Drawing is a skill which many creative university courses will teach, including Games Art & Design, Fine Art, Illustration, Animation and more.
‘Life drawing is very important to games artists – in particular character designers, as they need to be experts at anatomy, proportion and skeletal structures.’ Sophia George, Graduate of BA Games Art & Design- Norwich University of the Arts.
If your students are thinking of pursing an art subject at GCSE, A level or university, this taster session will not only give them an insight into what they can expect from Life Drawing, but will also give them the opportunity to create work that can be including in their coursework and Portfolio.
