Now Let’s Do Another One:  An Exhibition of Life Drawings

22 March to 15  April 2011

David Roper, the curator and Life Drawing Tutor, says: Life drawing classes may have been gradually phased out in British art schools over the past forty years, but this does not reflect their continuing popularity and usefulness with professional and amateur artists. The works included in Now let’s do another one… were all made by regular visitors to a two hour drop – in class.  Inevitably, given the brief time, a heavy emphasis is on speed, with poses ranging from as little as 30 seconds.  The purpose of this is to warm up the artists’ hand to eye co-ordination, prior to a model’s final pose, which might last as long as 45 minutes. The results are varied and fascinating.
 Artists: Paul Barton, David Roper, Will Myers, Michael Ward, Jane Hinchcliffe, Richard Story, Jos Van Heugten, Sam Thomas and Monica Shanta Brown.                                                                            Curated by David Roper
