In 2022 Sean shared the wonderful world of Atlelier drawing.  We are thrilled to welcome Sean back in 2023.  This workshop is for participants that have no or some experience in Atlelier drawing.

Sean will be taking participants on a journey of expressive drawing using the traditional atelier method dating back to the old masters.

In this course we will cover principals of proportion, line and gesture, and tone. Friday 21st is for new participants that have no experience of Atlelier drawing (or want to continue with getting the basics right).  The 2nd day will include participants from day 1 and previous participants continuing to explore different still life set-ups. Day 3 will explore the world of portraiture through studies of the skull and head using methods shown in previous days.

This is a hands-on practical workshop, with demonstrations to illustrate the various topics.  These learned skills will assist in any art practice.

We will be working with charcoal on paper which will give the opportunity for everyone to express their individual character.
