Kaleidoscope Gallery Life Drawing classes

‘Works on Paper’
life drawing class

6 x 2 hour classes
commencing Tuesday 24th April, 2012

Drawing instructor Olivia Burge (Fine Art Hons. NAS) & Kaleidoscope Gallery are pleased to present our 2012 life drawing class, Works on Paper.

Each fortnight a two-hour class will be held at Kaleidoscope Gallery with the aim of exploring and experimenting in line-making with the human figure.

The translation of the three-dimensional model on to a flat plane lies at the heart of drawing and has challenged artists since pre-presective.
In these six classes, we explore the idea of drawing as an abstract activity; through the analysis of line, proportion, weight, scale, tone, depth and light.
Throughout the course we investigate these visual values and their relationship to the human figure with a range of traditional materials (charcoal, graphite, ink) and papers.

Cost: $200. This includes six weeks tuition, life drawing models, a glass of wine & drawing instructor. KG will also include a variety of paper, charcoal, inks and drawing materials to experiment with on paper.

All skill levels are welcome and we encourage students who are interested in using alternative materials to contact Kaleidoscope Gallery prior to class.

Works on Paper drawing class commences Tuesday the 24th April, from 6-8pm, followed by every Second Tuesday for the duration of the course.

Class dates:
Tuesday, 24th April 2012
Tuesday, 8th May 2012
Tuesday, 22nd May 2012
Tuesday, 5th June 2012
Tuesday,19th June 2012
