The other part of my artist life is running the Broadway Drawing School in Cardiff where I am very proud to  offer what we believe is a unique (at least in Wales) set of courses in figurative drawing that have a solid basis in the artistic understanding of human anatomy. The ‘flagship’ course is THE BROADWAY ATELIER DIPLOMA IN FIGURE DRAWING, and I am now accepting applications for the new presentation for 2017-18.

Below are some details of the course.  If you are interested in discussing the opportunity please don’t hesitate to contact me.

IMG_0835 copy 3This intensive one-year, part-time course, recognised by the  Arts Council of Wales, will run over three, three-month semesters with starting dates in September 2017 and in January 2018. STUDIO SPACE IS PROVIDED within The Broadway Drawing School

With professional and intensive instruction scheduled primarily during evenings and weekends (averaging three evenings and three weekends per semester) it has been designed specifically to accommodate those who may have work/family commitments. Students who successfully complete all the requirements of the course will receive the BROADWAY ATELIER DIPLOMA (Previous students of this course have gone on the gain places at The Royal Drawing School in London)

The BROADWAY ATELIER DIPLOMA IN FIGURE DRAWING is a unique opportunity to enhance your professional development as an artist. It is designed to deepen your awareness, appreciation, and ability to represent the human form in all its moods and attitudes and includes an intensive learning experience based on the technique of ‘constructive anatomy’. We believe that this course is unique in Wales, and possibly in the UK, and it maximises your learning through a contemporary approach to a traditional ‘atelier’ education wherein theoretical knowledge and practical skills are taught through a variety of methods in order to enhance and extend your individual creativity.

With small student numbers and an emphasis on studio practice, students receive an in-depth education in figurative drawing skills and techniques (including a thorough basis in human anatomy) both in two-dimensional, and three-dimensional (ecorche) sculptural form. Practical group tuition and self-directed study will be supported by regular individual tutorials, formal and informal lectures and critical debate. All teaching is carried out within the environment of a professional artists studio.

Admission to the Diploma course will be through interview and portfolio. There is a maximum of 3 places. Interviews are ongoing until course is filled.

  • Total cost of course: £4000 (paid in full in advance, or by deposit and monthly installments). Cost includes:
    24 hour access to studio space
    professional, individual tuition
    formal and informal tutorials
    all handouts and course documentation
    materials for sculpture (ecorche) workshop.
