You may not be able to come into Morley in person but via live stream you can join our class working in real time in the studio at Morley.

This is a practical class, and you will spend most of your class time drawing and / or painting. The course will focus on observational studies drawing and painting from a live model. If you choose the online option, you may also like to draw or paint someone living with you who is prepared to model for you. You could also choose to make transcriptions from existing figure drawings and paintings by artists selected by you or your tutor. Your tutor will communicate with you via email and classes will be presented live online via ZOOM. For all students’ techniques will include: Contour and cross contour drawing with pencil. Weight & modelling with charcoal, brush, and tone. Gesture drawing with charcoal & pencil. Painting will include progressing from a limited to a wide-ranging palette focussing on form and tonal values. Beginners will concentrate on drawing during the beginning stages and will be guided through various techniques with the aim of exploring chosen techniques in more depth over a longer period. Returning students will pursue personal projects working in chosen medium exploring new techniques in painting & drawing. Although there are limitations when working from home, there is an opportunity here to meet with others online, to practice skills and investigate ideas away from the college studio. It might be that your work could (in part) reflect elements from this challenging time.
