SAE Liverpool hosts Life Drawing session for Animation students

13 Mar 2018

Last Friday (9 March), SAE Liverpool Animation students attended a Life Drawing session as part of a Cass Art Student Ambassador event. 

Held at the campus, the event was a huge success, with students from both first and second year in attendance.

Second year Visual Effects and Animation student, Morghann Linnett-Richardson, is a Cass Art Student Ambassador for SAE Liverpool and organised the Life Drawing event to give her fellow SAE students the opportunity to broaden their skillset.

She commented:

“Learning to draw with a real life drawing session is certainly different from watching from pictures and it is really a big step towards increasing our potential at traditional drawing.

“The session was really valuable to me, as I was able to combine my love for art with my chosen course and that is something that really excites me! It has really helped me for when I’m working on the human form and anatomy!”

Cass Art is a company with a mission to fill every town with artists, underpinned by their long- standing manifesto. Their 44 Student Ambassadors across the UK help spread their vision by running their own events on their respective campuses. 

The Life Drawing event was particularly beneficial to SAE Liverpool’s Animation students who encounter art every day in their studies. Being able to take part in a Life Drawing session has not only helped them improve their skills but also gave them the opportunity to experience a different method of drawing. Both first and second year Animation students attended, including Kyle Smith who said:

“We hope to have this session again in the future as it really does improve our drawing skills! It was an amazing and valuable experience, practicing my art skills with a live model was really helpful!”

Firdaus Khalid, Animation Programme Coordinator at SAE Liverpool was also in attendance and told us that the event was a great success and a key learning experience for the students. Having received such positive feedback, SAE Liverpool is hoping to run another session very soon.

A big thank you to the Campus Support Technicians and students who assisted in the organisation of the session, as well as the model Namora Mallory.
