About the event

When we are trying to get better as artists, it can be really important to study how other professional artists work. This enables us to expand our technique and way of thinking with the knowing that if they did it, then it must be good.

The intention isn't to copy them, or try and be someone we are not, but to step into the mind of an expert, take the bits WE like, and filter them into our own practice.

In this session we will dive into the dark childhood of Francis Bacon, which will help us to understand the nature of his art.  Then, I will take key pieces of his work and compare them directly with the influence to better our understanding of how exactly he interpreted what inspired him.

Once the theory side is done, we will delve into our own lives and find ways of bringing this into our drawings. We will work from photographs of people and animals, and also from our own faces. 

By the end of this session, you will have several exciting portrait and surreal drawings. You will feel you have expanded your technique and learnt how to bring your life into your work.

Highly recommened for artists of all abilities. This is an open space for creative expansion.
