Royal Academy of Arts Masterclass
Paul from the Royal Academy of Arts visited Prior’s Field on Wednesday to mentor our GCSE Fourth Form Art students. He spent the day with the girls to nurture their life drawing skills, starting with the recreation of a Lucian Freud painting and moving on to sketching a life model who posed for the session. The students were encouraged to work in a fluid and flexible manner during this exceptional opportunity. Paul explained that this type of drawing skill relies on making the right decision at the right time, using observation skills, ensuring the capture of a range of visual phenomena and sensing when to stop.
