Anthony Fry (1927-2016): A Retrospective
Exhibition Dates: 9 February – 7 May 2018
Life Drawing Workshop
“When a painting is flowing, it is a mind-to-brush activity. You are mixing paint and putting it on canvas in a complete flow of the unconscious. Those are the jewel moments one is struggling for.”
Fry worked within the traditional genres of landscape, portraiture and the nude. His work was underpinned by a solid foundation in drawing and his evocative studies of dancing, reclining and seated figures provide wonderful inspiration for life drawing.
Students will experience:
a guided tour of the exhibition, focusing on Fry’s paintings of nudes
an exhilarating life drawing class exploring movement, form and working through ‘mistakes’
Model, artists’ easels and all materials are provided within price.
Workshops are £130 + VAT for a 2 hour workshop – maximum 16 pupils
