WORKSHOP: Still Life Drawing Class with Caroline Bays
Sunday 18 November 2018
‘Let whoever may have attained to so much as to have the power of drawing know that he holds a great treasure.’ Michelangelo
‘The art of drawing which is of more real importance to the human race than that of writing…should be taught to every child just as writing is’. John Ruskin
As part of our ‘New Perspectives’ exhibition we are celebrating the art of observation with a Drawing Weekend which includes talks and workshops and tutored by professional artists.
Artists of all ages and experience are invited to join us for an hours still life drawing tuition with artist and tutor Caroline Bays. Learn how to observe the objects around us in a new way, with a perceptive awareness of their outline, shape, proportions, tone, texture, form and composition. As Caroline says, “There is a particular engagement with the subject matter that comes when working from life”. A still life will be set up in the Long Gallery to benefit from the space’s natural north-facing light.
Caroline regularly exhibits with The Royal Society of Portrait Painters and is a member of the ‘Pastel Society’. She has been shortlisted for the Lynn Painter Stainers Prize Exhibition 2013, The Hunting Prize, The Discerning Eye and The Garrick Milne Prize.
All drawing equipment will be provided.
