Jen Robson is an artist and tutor who lives in Fife and works from her studio at WASPS in Dundee.
She makes visceral drawings and paintings based on the human figure, all from a feminist point of view. Life drawing informs her practice, as she uses the body as a vessel to explore, respond to, and express the human experience.
You can work at any level in a relaxed group. Jen will be there to offer support, advice and demonstrations of technique to you where you might want it.
You will spend the class developing your drawings with the model. There will be a variety of short poses to warm up and longer poses to allow time for more involved drawings.
The focus will be on being present, mindful and responsive to what you observe in the moment. You will be gently encouraged to experiment and explore ways of drawing the figure.
Suitable for complete beginners to well practiced artists looking to share the experience.
