Three dimensional life drawing


Monday 20th, Tuesday 21st, Wednesday 22nd & Thursday 23rd August

10:am - 4:00pm

We will be exploring figure drawing three dimensionally using different materials. The final outcome will be four sculptures. You will be able to extend your skills in life drawing by portraying the figure in the round. Starting with straws, we will move on to wire sculpture then wicker figures and on the final day, mesh sculptures.

Please bring masking tape, paper knives, secateurs and scissors.

Nick Martin is a figurative painter and his work is based on drawing as the underlying structure. He concentrates mainly on portraits taking the form of hinged panel paintings , influenced by 14th and 15th century altar pieces. He also uses the principles of impressionist colour mixing to enhance colour with simultaneous complimentary colours, allowing the eye to mix shades and hues. Nick teaches life drawing and runs the new Portfolio Preparation course at Quay Arts.
