29 March 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm


29th March 2023 10:00 – 15:30

Price £140 –  including materials & lunch at the Egerton Arms


What you’ll learn

Want to get more ‘life’ into your life drawing by getting the basics right? 

Learn to quickly and efficiently capture the energy and grace of the figure while maintaining good proportions. This one day workshop with Christopher Clements will help you to get more expression and creativity into your life  drawing.

By learning to see and draw the essential elements of gesture, rhythm and balance you’ll produce dramatic, characterful drawings. As you develop these essential foundations you’ll also look at different types of line to create a believable sense of form.

  • Learn how to identify and capture key aspects of the figure
  • Build your drawings around the most important qualities of the pose
  • Develop a sense of visual rhythm in the figure
  • Use line to express form and energy and drama
  • Blend gesture with good proportion intuitively


Is this workshop for me?

This workshop will really suit you if:

  • You’d like an introduction to life drawing and want to know where to start.
  • You have experience of life drawing but want to focus on improving your proportion.
  • You struggle to keep the whole figure on the page when you’re drawing.
  • You need help drawing the head and feet.
  • You want to add dynamism and energy to the figures you draw. 
  • You just want a fun day life drawing with friendly, like minded people.


What you’ll need

Only yourself and lots of enthusiasm! The price includes lunch at the Egerton Arms next door and all the materials you’ll need so all you need to do is turn up and draw! 

You’re welcome to bring your own materials if you prefer, follow the link below to the Northern Realist website for a material list.
