Life Drawing with Liorah Tchiprout - an interview
1. You're co-ordinating some life drawing sessions at londonprintstudio in early March. Why is life drawing important to you?
You can draw from life everywhere, but there really is nothing like drawing from the nude figure. I went to my first life drawing session eleven years ago, and I never looked back! I'm so pleased for life drawing to be included in londonprintstudio's programme for artists, as I feel it is so vital.
2. Tell us about your plans, and how you're going to run the sessions.
The sessions will be two hours, with a tea break in the middle. There will short poses first to warm up, and then a longer pose at the end to really get stuck in to. We will have a diverse selection of models and poses, so it will be different each week!
I aim to make to make the sessions as inclusive as possible, so from seasoned life drawers to
complete beginners. The classes won't be tutored per se, but if anyone does want some guidance I'll be on hand for that, too.
3. What kind of people are you hoping to see at the sessions?
There don't seem to be many drop in style life drawing sessions in West London, so I'm hoping all
those who have been missing out find us! When I go to classes I'm always amazed at how varied the attendees are - professional artists but also hobby artists and beginners from all sorts of backgrounds. Though I do hope to see many members of the studio, too.
4. Tell us about your own art practice, and where we can see your work
I'm an artist working in print. As well a drawing from life, I build puppets as models for my etchings
and drawings. I graduated from Fine Art Printmaking at University of Brighton in 2016, and I'm
currently doing my MA in Print at Camberwell. I show with For Arts Sake and Greenwich Printmakers. I also manage the framing department of the GX Gallery. You can see my work here.
