Lecturer: Lucy Turnbull
Sat 3 Aug – Sat 7 Sep

Level: Intermediate to Advanced
The Clothed Figure invites participants to look beyond a particular way in which a thing exists or appears, to consider vast pictorial possibilities with a broad range of materials.
Drawing from a clothed life model in a constructed setup, Turnbull introduces a series of strategies utilising shape, line, tone, composition and pattern, for participants to develop new ways to express the figure in space.
Sessions will involve open discussions, with a focus on contemporary and historical drawings and paintings, to see how artists draw attention to human form through clothing and drapery.
