A fantastically liberating course where a grounding in looking is partnered with an energised journey of different experimental and expressive approaches and techniques. Faye is a very inspiring person to be around and her teaching is both considered and structured and yet vital and empowering. 

This exciting new course guides students to learn how to convey a sense of the weight, depth and volume of the body through techniques that utilize a broad range of drawing and painting materials and their resulting effects and marks. Some more experimental techniques will include working on a large format and drawing and painting with long sticks to help students work more freely. Much of the course is spent on looking at aspects of the anatomy in an engaging way so that you can create more convincing images of the human form; while the poses that you will work from range from traditional standing and seated poses through to more energised and thrilling examples such as learning to capture the figure in motion.

Faye Dobinson is also The Lead Tutor on our year long Defining Practice course.
