Drawing for Icon Painters
|Dates:||1 April 2017 - 29 April 2017|
|Location:||The Prince's School of Traditional Arts, 19-22 Charlotte Road, London EC2A 3SG|
Drawing is a core skill in any art form, but for icon painters it is essential. This course aims to help to understand the geometry, proportions and anatomy of the human body that is underneath the vestments.
Practice drawing the different parts of the human body, including male or female faces, hands and feet, the old and the young, and the garments and folds of various vestments.
Students should expect to leave the course with greater comfort and ability in hand-drawing an image, rather than a completed final work.
This course is suitable for anybody who is interested in icon painting and who is interested in improving their drawing and painting skills.
Please note there will be no class on Saturday, 15 April.
