Drawing the Contemporary Figure and Portrait by The Paper Stage

The primary language of any artistic discipline is drawing. Learning to speak it from life is an important exercise of connecting with the outside world. Paying continuous attention to something outside of ourselves allows for an interesting relationship to form between the artist and the subject, as well as helping us to develop a visual dictionary to refer to.

Drawing the Contemporary Figure and Portrait:

Join us for a tutored life drawing class, working together in the presence of a model to develop our artistic languages through experimentation with different mediums and poses, led by artists @anuschkabarlas and @getbeta

Anuschka Barlas is based in Edinburgh and received her BA in Painting and Printmaking from Glasgow School of Art in 2022. Her practice is rooted in drawing from observation and memory to explore the sensation and emotion of familiar places and people. Using a variety of mixed media intuitively, and with an experimental and expressive approach to mark-making, her drawings, paintings, prints and handwoven tapestries seeks to echo both the tactile and fleeting qualities of lived experience. @anuschkabarlas

Alexandra Beteeva (b. 1999, Moscow) is based in Glasgow and received her BA in Painting and Printmaking from Glasgow School of Art in 2022. Interested in post-Soviet spaces that are loving and familiar, a process of presenting history in the form of personal and collective memory, she asks what it means to be homesick for a home one never had. Stuck between history, place and time, she crystallises the collective experience of the past. Alexandra was selected for the RSA New Contemporaries award, Bloomberg New Contemporaries and is a recipient of the Euan Stewart Memorial Prize for Printmaking. @getbeta
