Looking through life drawing
In Rubens’s 'Judgement of Paris', the three nude goddesses reveal different aspects of the female form, each reflecting something of their individual characters.
This International Women’s Month, artist Jo Lewis takes a close look at Rubens’s celebration of female beauty and his sensitive, almost tender understanding of the female body, in various states of subtly conveyed emotion.
With a life model on the stage you will be invited to see the nuances of this painting more clearly, through some simple, non-judgemental and light-hearted drawing exercises.
Alternatively, you are welcome to join this session of careful looking and noticing as we consider the poses with fresh inquisitive eyes.
No experience necessary. Bring something to lean on. You are welcome to bring a notebook and pencil or pen. However, all materials will be provided.
