A day in the life room at Staffordshire University with first year students producing large studies using brown wrapping paper, black and white ready mixed paint and lots of different sized offcuts of card each used like a palette knife. Started each session with some mark making experiments learning how to work the card for maximum expression.
This really is such a liberating and expressive approach to take in the life room.. Most of the work produced by the students was bold and inspiring and I am looking forward to reading some blog posts about the day - I then spent the evening life drawing too!
The mark making exercise was shown to me in a life drawing workshop I attended in 2010 by Bridget Woods, artist tutor and author http://www.bridgetwoods.co.uk/ I would recommend her life drawing workshops and her excellent book - "Life Drawing a Journey of Self Expression."
