What You'll Get
Classes see budding aesthetes get to grips with observational drawing by learning the tenets of the Atelier method. Grounded by the principle that accurate drawing provides the foundation to good painting, sessions follow a step-by-step process. To begin, proportion and shape will be studied in both line and mass using charcoal. A number of drawing techniques will then be demonstrated with a focus on correct proportion, shape and tonal values. By the end of the class or day, participants will have been taught the essential skills needed to map out a representational drawing. Artists can opt for either a three-hour or full-day workshop, and can make the most of the on-site tea and coffee facilities.

Situated at a studio minutes from Dorset’s coastline, Classical Art Academy is led by Martin Close and delivers an array of courses and classes in both classical drawing and oil painting. Martin started as a designer and illustrator, developing techniques for creating 3D renderings of plans using ink and watercolour. After opening his first art gallery in Marlow, he discovered a passion for oil painting which led him to establish the academy. Tuition focuses on classical art methods derived from the Ancient Greek and Renaissance eras. Half- and full-day sessions are offered alongside longer courses, focusing on both the Atelier observation method and classical drawing techniques.
