AN INTRODUCTION TO
Figurative Drawing & Expression
Saturdays 10th, 17th and 31st August
Learn, Draw, Explore & Walk with a master figurative artist. Join artist Alvin Kofi for a series of unique, inspiring and creative afternoon workshops. A rare opportunity to gain the experience and skills to motivate your own creativity.
The workshops take the participants on an exploration of the human form, drawing from African and European classical figurative sculptors from antiquity to the modern day.
Let Alvin Kofi be your guide; overcome and examine the first obstacles in drawing the figure from both a realistic and abstract approach to expressing the form.
Workshop One: Draw 1pm to 4pm
Draw on a diverse set of techniques and formulae in constructing the human figure. Through each process you will improve your ability to present the figure in proportion.
Workshop Two: Explore 1pm to 4pm
Explore the dynamics of perspective and colour in expressing the form. Learn the basic principles on how to create abstract forms.
Workshop Three: Museum Walk and Draw
1pm to 4pm
During an afternoon of figurative exploration at the V&A. Undertake direct drawing studies from classical figurative sculptures exhibited in the exhibition halls of the V&A Museum. Utilise the skills you have gained from the first two workshops and direction from the artist Kofi on the day. Materials: please bring a A3 sketch pad on the day of the walk and draw.
This workshop programme is designed to help artists and creative individuals gain the confidence and skills to draw and present the form confidently. Participants will be equipped with the tools and insight to assist with a range techniques you can use in your own creative projects.
