Man’s Best Friend: Animals in Art (December 9th)


With Aidan Doyle

This is a one day course on:
Saturday 9th of December,
10.00 – 16.00. 

Back by popular demand, this course will teach you how to draw a variety of animals, exploring characterful representation.

From the likes of Edwin Landseer through to Jeff Koons, representation of animals in art has changed drastically, in both style and media.

Throughout the course you will learn how to produce simple likeness in pencil, soft pastel and charcoal, developing basic observation and drawing skills ensuring an understanding of the basics of animal drawing before embarking upon the complex subject of developing character in animal portraiture.

We will look at animals as a subject in art. How have artists treated the seemingly difficult subject of fur, for example? You will be given ideas about how best to sit your subject and how to photograph an animal for optimal character and likeness in your drawing.

All abilities welcome.
All materials provided.
