Mixed Media Life Drawing

Mixed Media Life Drawing

Central Saint Martins
Taught by
Roger Gill


This course is a chance for you to choose the manner in which you create the figure utilising your choice of mediums. Whatever you like to work with, be it pencils, pens, chalks, inks, watercolours, acrylic, or oils, you will be encouraged to experiment and develop innovative new approaches under the guidance of the tutor.

A variety of exercises will be put in place that will specifically relate to your chosen media, with an emphasis on acute observation.  You should bring you own materials but if you wish to try new material you will receive expert guidance on their use.

Topics covered

The range of topics covered will depend on students’ individual interests. Typically the course will cover:

  • improving your observational drawing skills
  • practicing with a number of different dry and wet media
  • experimenting with line, tone, texture, scale and composition
  • exploring collage techniques

Entry requirements: None, apart from a willingness to experiment!

Level: Beginners

Please note: This course is for students aged 18 and older
