A comprehensive guide to what's happening at Birmingham's museums.

Adult workshop: Life drawing (experimental styles)

Adult workshop: Life drawing (experimental styles)

Location: Birmingham Museum

28th September 2013 - 28th September 2013

This workshop will take place in the Art Classroom in the Learning Zone. 11am - 4pm.

Join experienced artist and tutor, Anne Brierley, for this friendly and relaxed life drawing workshop.  Participants will work from a nude life model for a number of shorter exercises and poses, as well as working on a longer pose to be determined by the group on the day. 
This workshop will take a different approach to life drawing, and participants will be encouraged to work in an experimental, expressive way, even using abstraction, should they wish to.  So if you would like to create figurative drawings with a feel of Matisse or Picasso, this workshop is for you!  A range of materials will be used during the session.
This workshop is part of a set of three life drawing workshops (also on Saturdays 14 September and 12 October). These workshops are designed as stand alone workshops and are not a course, but you are welcome to book more than one.
Tickets £30.00 – places are limited and advance booking is essential.  To book a place please contact our box office on 0121 303 1966, visit the Gas Hall reception desk, or book on-line.
