Painting the Figure

2-Day workshop for young people

For October half term 2018, we brought Painting the Figure to Finchley Church End Library with Barnet Libraries and Barnet Youth Engagement Services.

This 2-day workshop for young people, aged 9 - 14 years took inspiration from the clothed male and female life subject. Participants learned techniques for using gouache and working with colour, and strengthened their skills of observation skills and creative expression.  

Most importantly, they were encouraged to have fun and, through structured exercises, explore the ranges of their ability. We think the outcomes speaks for themselves.

The workshop was led by Figuration tutor Nicci James with models Dean Fudge and Kaeridwyn Eftelya. Materials were kindly provided by Great Art.
