2 Day Life Drawing Workshop - Egon Schiele Theme // with the artist Tadhg McGrath // Saturdays December 2nd & 9th // 11:00 - 17:00
A short course devoted to exploring the drawings of Austrian Expressionist Artist Egon Schiele. 2 days, starting Saturday December 2nd
Egon Schiele's career was short and intense. A protégé of Gustav Klimt, he made artworks which tried to depict the psychological world as well as examining the female figure in an analytical and detached way. With particular reference to Schiele's life-drawings and self-portraits, this course will allow students to explore his working methods and artistic responses to the model. Using a series of linked classes with exercises on line, composition, and gesture, this short course will look at how Schiele's drawings can still be shocking and provocative.
COURSE FEE: €125
All materials and model fees included
