This Workshop is designed to improve your drawing skills based on the tradition of the Old Masters and using Atelier method of Figure Drawing. Using the sight-size-size method of measurement and working directly from the model, you will learn how to reproduce the subject with accuracy. The concentration will be on gesture, proportion, line, and value, whilst mapping in the light and shade. This exercise allows both the drawing and model to be viewed next to each other for easy comparison. The model will take on a long pose to allow students to work on the above mentioned points.
Instruction is adapted to each students level of experience with a step by step guidance.
