Virtual workshops: Draw Along

7.00 - 8.00pm, Thursday 6, 13 & 20 August | Virtual workshops via Zoom webinar | Free, bookings required

Tune in and draw along in these evening life drawing workshops, with artist Dr Bill Platz. 
Discover tips for approaching drawing and take inspiration from artists in QAGOMA’s Collection. You’ll be virtually transported to Bill’s studio and invited to draw from live models. 

Session 1: Yesterday’s Bodies | Thu 6 Aug | Book now
Life drawing is rooted in the histories and traditions of the nineteenth century Academies. Learn techniques that have been used for centuries, including how to arrange and draw the posing model.

Session 2: Sudden Bodies | Thu 13 Aug | Book now 
Life drawing often requires models to practice endurance, posing motionless for long durations. Capture the energy and natural movements of the model, through a rapid gesture drawing.

Session 3: Unruly Bodies | Thu 20 Aug | Book now
Unlearn what you know about conventional ways to draw the body. Explore how contemporary artists have created strange, unexpected and rebellious responses to posing models.

Paper, Pen or pencil (whatever you have laying around at home!)
Optional materials – if you want to take your drawing to the next level: A1 or A2 paper, charcoal (compressed and/or willow), eraser (kneaded and/or rubber)

This event is a webinar. Participant’s webcam and microphone will be disabled. Sessions will be recorded and made available on QAGOMA’s YouTube channel.

Proudly presented by HSBC
