Course Description

This face-to-face module is designed to complement the module ‘Approaches to Life Drawing’. Based around a programme of life classes, it also requires students to investigate the historical and contemporary context of life drawing in charcoal. Finished drawings are not the aim of this module, but an opportunity for the student to experiment with the different approaches to life drawing using the medium of charcoal. 


There will be a variety of poses at each session plus long poses enabling the student to experience a range of techniques. These can be executed in both practical and independent study.

  • Experimentation with charcoal
  • Introduction of students to different artists
  • Measurement of proportion
  • Fixed measurement
  • Working into drawings with an eraser
  • Evaluation techniques encouraging self-criticism
  • Use of a plumb line
  • Comparative drawings
  • Tone, line, chiaroscuro, creating atmosphere
  • Cropping an image, negative spaces, composition and foreshortening
  • Expressing mass and form
