LARA is thrilled to continue their collaboration with the fabulous Art Model Collective into 2019.

Our first session is an exciting opportunity to animate your drawings from life with the supervision and guidance of a professional animator.

On a relaxed Saturday afternoon, we will set up one single pose in the Figure Room on a rotating platform, and work with Aaron Jacob Jones to help you animate your life drawings during this 3 hour session.

We're going to spin the model 360 degrees and give everyone 8 different angles of the same pose. Aaron will guide you through the technicalities, suggesting to capture each angle as consistently as you can, using the same materials, colours and scale. At the end of the session, Aaron will explain how to turn your drawings into a spinning animation, using a website, a mobile app or even Photoshop. Even the simplest sketches will blend together to create the illusion of spinning movement. 

The exercise will enhance your understanding of the 3D form of the human figure, and seeing your artwork animated is always a quirky delight! 

The sessions are open to every level of skill. 

Chairs and drawing boards will be provided for all and there are 18 easels available on a first-come, first-served basis.

AMC will provide a selection of paper and free materials courtesy of GreatArt. Artists are encouraged to experiment with different media – varied charcoals, pastels, pencils, pens and even chunky markers. (You are welcome to use wet materials like inks, watercolours and oils, but please bring your own.)

Advance tickets are on sale via EventBrite, and the spaces are limited.
