Life Drawing the Slow Art Way

Event icon

Date: Saturday 11 Apr 2015

Location: The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery

Time: 13:30 - 16:00

Cost: Free (with £5 booking fee)

This month's life drawing class with Rob Oldfield will take place at a slightly slower pace than usual as the principles of Slow Art Day and taking time to look at art are adopted to by all.

Show description +

The principles of Slow Art Day are simple; to help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art. Because when people look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries.

In this month's life drawing class, tutor Rob Oldfield will encourage all to stop, look and make their own discoveries within the Gallery before using what they have found as inspiration for producing their own work.

So why not join us this month and take part in an international art revolution as well as one of our most popular Burton Saturday events.

Whether you are a newcomer to the art-form or an experienced artist, this workshop is open to all. Feel free to come to one class or come to all and watch as your style and skill develops under the tutelage of artist and previous life model, Rob Oldfield.

Some materials will be supplied but please feel free to bring your own too.

Rob Oldfield has been leading our life drawing classes since August 2014 and everyone is a fan! Rob is a York based artist, graphic designer, sign-writer, art technician and tutor. He has modelled for life classes for many years as well as teaching life drawing to his students. Rob's skills and experience are truly endless. As a tutor Rob encourages, advises and listens and this workshop will undoubtedly be an informative and enjoyable session for all.

This is a free workshop but please remember that spaces are limited so booking is a must! A £5 refundable deposit will be requested upon booking. Cancellation within 48 hours of the event will not be eligible for a refund.
