Life Class

Monday 12.30pm to 2.30pm

 

The life class will consist of drawing or painting from the nude model, who will pose for 2hrs (with breaks) We will usually take a tea break at about 1.15pm for 15min. The poses will vary - some weeks we will do more shorter poses, usually at the start of a term, and also one single session poses. This will depend on the dynamics of the group and quite democratic. All media is acceptable and down to the individual. Tuition is in a ‘mentoring’ style and Wayne will work with you on your individual development throughout the sessions, rather than set group exercises. All abilities/experience welcome.

Painting Class/Mentoring

Mondays 3.00pm to 5.00pm

 

Tuition is in a ‘mentoring’ style and Wayne will work with you on your individual development throughout the sessions. After an initial appraisal of your preferred direction, development can be achieved either by us working on your personal projects that you are welcome to bring along or by setting you specific technical exercises to strengthen specific skills as required. Throughout the term, Wayne will also discuss specific topics and give demos as appropriate. Wayne will be happy to give constructive appraisal/ critique on any piece of your work, as well as any other development advise. All painting media and abilities welcome.
