Although renowned as a landscape painter, Ivon Hitchens also painted the nude model in his studio. Artist Mik Godley, with life model Emma Boston, will lead two workshops guiding students in the art of drawing and painting the figure.

Mik Godley has taught Life-drawing and painting in colleges and universities for over 30 years. His experience of teaching is intertwined with his own drawing and painting — both digitally and “analogue” — as each has informed the other. Observation and perception is at the core.

Mik’s two Life Classes will take students on a journey from recognising key elements of the human form and how to depict them, to the qualities of marks and materials enjoyed by Ivon Hitchens.
