Humber Museums Partnership - Life Drawing Masterclass: Artist Led Workshop

Ferens Art Gallery

Event Starts:

Event Ends:

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Inspired by the SKIN exhibition, explore the human form through life drawing, and the ways in which it can be responded to through different mediums.

In this 2-hour workshop, the participants will work directly from the life model with the support and guidance of artist Linda Ingham. There will be a single pose throughout the session where the model will be considered in relation to a prop and compositional aspects.

The first half of the session will concentrate on drawing in charcoal (or other preferred mediums if participants so require) and how props and composition affect how the artists and their viewers might look at and read the work.

During the second half of the session, Linda will demonstrate a palette and colour-mixing for skin tones as well as continued support and guidance.

Participants may either continue to work on their drawings, or choose to experiment with colour.

Linda will be working in charcoal and oils, but the colour-mixing section may be adapted to acrylics, watercolours and other media.
