The subject of this day course will be a series of classical ballet positions, which will be repeated to allow the time for developing drawings and achieving a greater understanding of these dynamic postures.


Working in a supportive and relaxed atmosphere each individual will be encouraged develop your own personal response to the theme, experimenting with mark making techniques, tonal studies and compositional ideas.

The morning will begin with quick gesture drawings and a series of repeated poses, which can be developed into a narrative composition. The afternoon will continue with repeated postures working towards a fully realised composition.

Students will be taught through practical demonstrations, discussion and one-to-one tutoring.

This course is tailored to each individual’s skill level and to the group as a whole.

Some previous drawing experience would be useful for this class though not essential.
