Beginners to Advanced

Life drawing is a constant state of discovery and immediacy as we learn to see and feel the human form from a drawing perspective.

Artist and tutor Christine Simpson will take you on a journey to explore the landscape of the human figure. We will consider in different sessions rhythm; form; depth; gravity; the power of the line; tonal shapes and relationships; emotional sensations; shadow-play; and the building blocks of anatomy.

In these life drawing sessions we are involved in the act of seeing both the energy and construction of the human form to render a sense of what is, rather then slavishly trying to get there by copying. We are endeavouring to see creatively and not to use the thinking brain to analyse and objectify.

Each term we look at a different master drawer for inspiration into different ways of seeing.


Our Lifedrawing coursework for Term 3 is currently full, so one of our regular attendees participated in the first session via Zoom due to social distancing restrictions. This was very successful, so much so that we have decided to offer these classes live and online for the four remaining sessions for Term 3.

To protect our models privacy Sydney Art Space makes it clear that online, or indeed face to face students do not have permission to record images of the model or distribute images and that it is illegal to do so without consent, which in this case would not be given. So that we are all on the same page there will be a form regarding model privacy sent out upon enrolment to sign before inclusion in the online classes.

Online dates:

  1. Aug 24th
  2. Sept 7th
  3. Sept 21st
