Quentin Crisp’s vocation was being a life-model, as he recounts in ‘The Naked Civil Servant’.



A 6-week life-drawing course using historical and contemporary drawing techniques with ‘The Art Practitioner’ alternative art school. Develop and expand your drawing skills by drawing through an exploration of the figure-drawing techniques of the giants of art history in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, taught by professional artists.


Who: All welcome – students, beginners and professional artists.


When: Every Wednesday  6th October – 10th November, from 6 till 9pm


Where: The Queen of Hungary Project Space, Aylsham, Norfolk


Charges: £15 drop-in or £80 paying in advance for 6 classes


Details: The aim of the course is to stretch your drawing skills by looking at and talking about the work of six of art history’s most accomplished, innovative and skilled artists, from renaissance to contemporary: as well as Rembrandt you will be looking at Raphael, Egon Schiele, Paula Rego, Degas and Emma Talbot.


Each week we will begin with a slide show and introduction to the week’s artist, looking at how the different artists approach line, volume, space and mass, make light and shadow, composition etc.


With these ideas fresh in mind, you will draw the life model in a series of short poses, and after the break we will draw one long pose for 40 minutes.
