This 15-week term will be organised around three blocks of five weeks in drawing. Dorothy Smith will lead the first block, drawing from the environment through fieldwork and self-portraiture. Una Sealy and David Eager Maher concentrate on live observation from the figure with an emphasis on anatomy, structure and gesture. The module aims to transition students from direct contact to full self-directed drawing practice and there will be an assigned self-directed project. There are 3 hours contact tuition per week with an equal weight to self-directed learning. Students will build drawing skill and material approaches over the course of the module. 

Tutors: Una Sealy RHA, David Eager Maher and Dorothy Smith.
