What to Expect


The study of human anatomy is fundamental to drawing the figure. It helps us to understand and represent the structure of the human form, and to combine expressiveness with accuracy. This course will cover the muscles and skeletal system, with particular emphasis on the torso, head, limbs, eyes, hands and feet. Students will work from life models and the skeleton.

Studio Facilities: Easels, drawing boards and basic materials are all included in the price of the course, as are refreshments. George will advise on supplemantary materials which may be beneficial as we move forward through the course.

What to Expect


At Print Club we will explore a range of different printmaking techniques including monoprint, linocut, cardboard cut, drypoint and collagraph. Each week we will focus on a different method and students will get the chance to bring their own ideas and projects to work on. We will use found materials and plates made from recycled packaging in addition to more traditional supplies. 


Within these techniques we will cover design, the printing process, inks, tools and printing with and without a press. You will create a print or two during each session.

It will be a small group and the classes will be flexible, with support for anyone who wishes to focus more on a particular technique.
