Course Overview

Are you keen to improve your ability to see and draw the human body from the privacy of your own home? This dynamic new drawing course lets you work directly with live models in an online studio, within a safe digital environment and an intimate group of students. Fran O’Neill teaches you to develop your observational drawing skills in form, volume and gestural awareness, operating with the underlying assumption that drawing is a direct examination of (and possible challenge to) our perceptions and experience of the world and, as such, drawing is transformative to an art practice.

The scale of drawings will range from moderate to large as the course progresses and Fran guides you in examining the interaction of the figure in the picture plane, along with strategies to explore further pictorial elements of drawing. She introduces you to master artists from past and present times in a deeply thoughtful manner, sharing the wisdom she has gained over many years as a practicing artist. Fran works with students to solve the issues as they encounter them and she orients her teaching to both the needs of the individual and the group, providing insightful critiques and a final review at the culmination of the course. Students with limited drawing experience are welcome and the course is also suitable for artists with years of practice who want strong guidance and direction in their drawing practice and real models to work with.

COURSE DELIVERY

Fran’s online studio course is taught with Zoom and takes advantage of the full range of tools that this program offers. She is present in the online studio for the whole session and she responds directly to students’ questions with live demonstrations and discussions. There are live models to draw in every week of the course and they will be partially clothed to protect their privacy in a digital environment.

If you are unfamiliar with the Zoom program, some tutorial assistance is available prior to the commencement of the first session to ensure you can join in with ease and get to know the online learning environment.

Class sizes are limited to a maximum of twelve students and the sessions are not recorded.

Student home-studio requirements

A computer, laptop or iPad with good quality wifi connection.
The computer screen positioned in a stable place in front of you, at a distance that allows you to see screen images clearly, and to be heard through the inbuilt or external speakers and microphone.
A smart phone or camera for taking photos of your artworks
