Throughout her life, Hilda Rix Nicholas created magnificent studies of French peasants, elaborately robed and elegant women and period and exotic costumed figures – often devising and making the various garments for her sitters. In this workshop led by prominent artist Ann Cape, participants will work with a costumed model to create drawings which reveal character and narrative.
Students should have some experience with figure drawing.
