About
Join contemporary artist Genevieve Swifte for an online drawing course exploring the figure, portraiture, self portraiture, anatomy and perspective. 
Informed by her PhD research and 20 years experience as a practicing artist, Life Support will draw on aspects of Genevieve's current practice and is intended as an alternative to traditional life drawing classes at a time of social distancing and isolation.

What to Expect
Suitable for all levels – from beginners to advanced practitioners, each of Genevieve's classes are carefully researched and are designed to: 
• Help you see the world around you with greater clarity 
• Translate what you see from three dimensions into two 
• Heighten the sensitivity and dexterity of your hand, wrist and arm 

Moving between technical instruction, poetic interpretation and forms of abstraction, participants will have access to: 
• Guided observation and mark making exercises informed by dance theory, neuroaesthetics and contemporary drawing practices 
• Anatomical diagrams and theoretical frameworks for drawings of the human form 
• One-on-one feedback and support
