"For me, drawing is everything—because it informs everything. It even informs my poetry. It’s the way I begin everything..Jim Dine



Life Drawing class


Access to Art & Design group of students, full of enthusiasm,
with a sense of excitement, some frustrations and
a lot of mutual encouragements spent eight weeks in the last
term of exploring a full range of techniques and artistic
viewpoints and produced a number of strong and creative
life drawings and paintings!
The students found that the most complicated (inhabited)
landscape of nature: the human figure is not that complicated
to draw after all.
Long and short poses with stimulating Veselinka's
''free yourself'' approach, created relaxed but professional
atmosphere that made drawing interesting and successful
for all students.
Several students from ND Graphics, ND Interiors and
BTEC Visual arts course joined the Access group in this
creative and stimulating process of learning.

Drawing as always been the essence of most art forms. Since the beginnings of mankind it has always been the closest form to nature. It is another form of language to express nature, creativity, (creativity which comes from nature and what we see) and mankind. Probably the earliest forms of drawing date back to the prehistoric cave paintings at Lascaux.
