Academic Figure Life Drawing [10-Week Course]

Sep 27th - 6th
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Little Room, Garter Lane Arts Centre (Beside Delaney’s Florest)

Drawing the human figure from life is perhaps the most challenging subject an artist can face. This workshop shows you the classical approach to life drawing, following a manageable step-by-step procedure and slowly unravelling this complex subject matter.

This course, with Adrian Cooke, will provide you with a good grounding in the structure and anatomy of the human body, an understanding of how the Old Masters approached the figure, familiarity with working with a live model, and many basic drawing skills, producing a finely rendered figure drawing by the end of the week

Thursdays 7.00-9.30pm (Little Room)

Drawing Instructor

Coming from a rigorous formal training in classical music – piano and music composition – Adrian is a largely self-taught visual artist. He has selected areas of study and interest, such as the classical atelier method, to inform the style and ethos of his work. He works predominantly in traditional drawing and painting media, regarding these fundamental skills and techniques as essential building blocks in his work. His style, however, would be better described as Abstract Realism. His first exhibition was a series of classical portraits and master copy drawings at 33 The Mall, Waterford, in 2014.
