Tutor: Tim Miller
Tim’s quiet enthusiasm for drawing is contagious. He is a very experienced artist and art teacher who is generous with his knowledge and very adept at supporting those keen to develop their practice. He has a great knack for understanding where students may be having difficulty in their work and a great repertoire of practical approaches students might wish to consider using. Tim’s work both as a teacher and artist have won him great respect in the national art community. He has been an occasional tutor at the Julian Ashton Art School, and the Atelier Art Classesin Salisbury, Brisbane. He has taught in the higher education sector and offers tuition from his own studio. Tim’s work is represented in many public and private collections including The National Museum of Australia and Parliament House, Canberra.
This course offers a very practical approach to life drawing. Working from life models, plaster casts and skeletons Tim will guide students to observe the anatomical structure of the human form and provide guidance on using a range of linear techniques and mediums to produce tonal studies of the life form. The course will commence with a focus on the full torso, and then examine various parts of the human form (hands, knees, face, etc). The course will conclude with more expressive drawing in charcoal and mixed media.
Careful consideration will be given to the use of:
- Line and placement
- Proportion and direction
- change of plane and form
- properties of light
- colour and rendering
- composition and expression
