Originally devised and taught by Heather Spears, an internationally renowned artist, author, poet and tutor, these courses cut through to the essence of drawing the human form.
Heather Spears has taught both The Creative Eye and Drawing the Head courses in my studio a number of times over recent years and has given me permission to continue her teaching legacy. My own teaching experience helps bring Heather’s insights, perceptiveness and unique series of exercises and drawing practices to life making them accessible to new students looking to learn and improve their life drawing skills.
Heather Spears’ book The Creative Eye is available to buy on Amazon and she is in the process of writing her second drawing book ‘Drawing the Head’.
Both life drawing courses are fully taught life classes by Brian Raymond and are suitable for beginners to experienced artists.
