Haworth Life Drawing Series, 2018

Funded by the Haworth Charitable Trust

Thanks to support from the Haworth Charitable Trust, the School of Arts & Media re-introduced life drawing to the curriculum in 2015 and this exhibition showcases some of the work that has been produced through the life drawing classes.

The Series has ensured that students from a range of programmes including Visual Arts, Fashion Design, Animation, Graphic Design and Computer Games Design can develop this key artistic skill at their own pace and reflect this new knowledge and understanding in their work. The sessions used different models, a variety of poses and encouraged students to use pencil, charcoal, pastel and paint to represent the human form. This small selection showcases work from some of the participants.

The Haworth Life Drawing Prize, a travel bursary of £750.00, will be presented to one student at the preview. This year there is also the addition of a second place price of £150.00 and a third prize of £100. The awards are judged upon the quality of the drawings/paintings in the students’ wider portfolios, their development of skills and their active participation to the life drawing classes.

The Haworth Life Drawing Series 2018 is dedicated to the memory of Jeremy Haworth.
