Eimhin’s life drawing course at A4 Sounds is back with new dates, beginning on Monday the 20th of February!
You can book the full 6 week course here: LINK (Fee: €50 EUR)
The first half of each class will involve a lot of short poses, working on speed and energy in your drawing, incorporating resistance exercises to improve observation and drawing ability, such as gesture, blind, bamboo-stick and wrong-handed drawing. In the second half of each class you will have free reign to apply what you have learned over 2-3 longer poses. We will be using a number of different media, such as charcoal, pastels and ink.
