Life Drawing with a twist

On the first Friday of every month THE DRAWING LAB presents a Life Drawing session with a twist.  With a different theme or concept each month these are fun and relaxed sessions but also gives the drawers an opportunity to challenge themselves and think outside the box.  These sessions are accessible to all levels, and this Friday we’re working with the theme of WINTER!  We will be contrasting our two models with elements of winter, it’s going to be a great night so please join us!

Places are limited, please book your easel HERE to avoid disappointment.

CHROMATOPIA

Congratulations to our wonderful sponsor LANGRIDGE ARTIST COLOURS on their new website and upcoming exhibition CHROMATOPIA – a history of colour.

Welcome to Chromatopia, an exhibition on the history of colour.
Spanning thousands of of years, travel through the story of pigments and their incredible journeys from across the globe.
Tales of dragons & beetles, alchemy & poisons, slaves & pirates, from the ancient world to the present come alive in this exhibition on colour’s creation.
This voyage of discovery features pigments made from deadly metals, poisonous minerals, bodily waste, crushed insects and predatory sea snails. Colours dug simply from the ground beneath us, others so expensive that only kings and popes could afford them.
Within the exhibition, see the living process of historical colour manufacture in action.
Also featured is the new world of strange modern colours that only reveal themselves when touched, are invisible in sunlight or shine in the dark.
Opening 6:30pm on the 31st of May and on display from the 1st to the 18th of June 2017.

New workshop with Celeste Chandler!

We’re excited to announce a brand new workshop with Celeste Chandler – SKIN COLOUR AND FIGURE PAINTING FROM LIFE

This workshop will teach the basics of painting the life model in oils, focusing on how to mix skin tones and how to quickly block in the forms, tones, colours and composition before refining your painting.  In this one day workshop students will explore how to complete a painting of the life model in a single sitting.
