Brilliant course with talented, inspiring, compassionate tutors. I would never have had the courage to do a life class 'in the flesh' with others around me as I am an anxious beginner with more patience than skill or natural talent.

 

I can work at my own pace with lots of breaks and hope to improve my skills to the level of others who share their amazing work.

 

Thank you Kirsty and Jen, talented artists and excellent teachers; a rare combination.

"Bowlifedrawing is providing a super package.  Designed and led by two friendly practicing artists, the on-line course has developed how I see, measure from life, and draw expressively.  It's very rewarding." 

 

"I think it’s really good and well structured, the way you’re slowly building up the skills (and our confidence!)

through the different sessions. Also love the models!"

The Body of Work life drawing course has allowed me to fit lessons around my full-time job.

 

The models and poses seem to have been carefully chosen so as not to seem overwhelming to a beginner like me.

 

My lovely tutor Jen has encouraged me to keep challenging myself, answered all of my questions no matter how daft, and always takes time to ensure I'm getting what I want from the session.

Thank you both so much for this.
 

I was a little nervous paying so much for this upfront as I've dipped my wee toe into some life drawing since I began again last summer, including some subscription content, and this has been of the highest quality.
 

I'm not an artist, I'm a full time nurse and I really just do this to relax and make myself happy, but I'm ever hopeful of getting better.
 

It's so great to be able to replay the poses a few times.
 

Looking forward to benefitting from your experience and drawing more human less potato looking figures

Great class again last Monday. I’ve just caught up now and have included my efforts. Busy week.

 

I thought the introductory video was inspiring. I never appreciated life drawing was such a discipline in itself. Also as an expression of oneself and emotions.

 

I also found the intro to the graphite and charcoal really helpful.

I found the opening video very accessible. Heartfelt and inspiring introduction to mark making with charcoal and graphite. Really helped me to stay in the moment when feeling and exploring the marks.

 

Music is a catalyst. A rich experience. It will be exciting to see how this translates into drawing the model.
