This course is designed to enable students to develop a systematic and straightforward approach to using systems of measurement when drawing from life or two-dimensional sources. Focus will be placed on the significance of an economical and direct method, aimed to promote confidence in the student. Students will learn the grammar of observational drawing, including use of outline, masses, interpreting values and the light effect. The first part of the course will be dedicated to drawing the figure or object from life, followed by an assignment in which student-provided photographs provide the subject material for highly resolved value drawings.

Giles Lester is a practicing painter and sculptor based in London. He graduated in painting from the Florence Academy of Art in 2009. He was recently awarded the Talos Prize for best newcomer in the Society of Portrait Sculptors annual exhibition.
