So - I've developed a draft of a guide to life drawing and life classes. I've also decided to try something new. The complete guide has been compiled in pdf format and is available to download from my website.
What the guide covers
A Making A Mark Guide: Life Drawing and Life Class provides answers to the following:
- what is life drawing?
- what are the benefits of life drawing?
Life drawing teaches you how to see
Life drawing teaches you how to draw what you can see
Life drawing enables you to develop your own style of drawing
- practical aspects of a life class
- where can I find a life class?
- what do I need to take?
- what should I expect - of the place, the people and how it all works
- what I'm really worried about..... and the answers to the frequent concerns of people who've never enrolled.
Copyright applies and all rights are reserved in relation to commercial use. The guide is only free to the individual who downloads the document and then uses it for their personal educational use.
I'm expecting to convert it in future to a shorter version which will be free and a longer version which will be priced. So if you want to take a look I suggest you download it now!
Version 1.0 must NOT be copied nor priced and sold, nor used in a fee-paying workshop or any other commercial setting unless a licence has been granted by me and a fee paid (which will vary according to usage). Contact me for further details.
Feedback and follow up
What I'd very much appreciate is feedback on the layout and content of the guide. Also please let me know, via comments below, if there are any matters which I've left out but which you'd really like the answer to.
I'm planning a follow up post which will be about tips for drawing in a life class and links to any other useful sites for those contemplating life drawing.
