Course information

Classically trained artist Rachel Vynne welcomes you to a programme of drawing based upon her training in Florence.

Following in the footsteps of many of the great artists since the late 19th century, students will copy from a set of Charles Bargue lithographs. These lithographs were developed to give a student of art a thorough understanding of technique, thereby equipping them with the foundation of excellence in their practice.

Working at their own pace, students of all abilities will complete four lithographs in pencil, each assignment progressively teaching the student how to measure accurately, articulate shapes and create volume.    

Small class sizes.
