On Saturday 26th January 14 keen A level Fine Art students attended a life drawing course from 9am until 4pm at the The Fallibroome Academy art department.

Attending students were Emily Cross, Connie Law, Shona Williams, Tiegan Shaw, India Rawsthorn, Laura Muthi, Sara Paowana, Hannah Forrest, Holly Hudson, Katie Smith, Chloe Harrison, Rowan Allen and Kornelia Dobrowlska. The workshop was led by practicing artist Sabine Kussmaul, who’s current practice can be viewed here; http://www.sabinekussmaul.com/.

Sabine has great experience leading art workshops and life drawing classes and arrange for a sitter to pose for the A level students. Throughout the day the budding young artists used a wide variety of materials and were taught new techniques, pushing them out of their comfort zone. Students said the following: 

 

It was really engaging

Dr Smith who was also in attendance said:

This day has had a tremendous impact on the students artistic thinking and creative process. It was awe inspiring how engaged and skilful they were at capturing the model and these skills will certainly aid them in their coursework.

Many thanks to Sabine Kussmaul for leading the day and Sarah Haigh for organising the logisitics.
