Session 1: Yesterday’s Bodies
Life drawing is rooted in the histories and traditions of the nineteenth century Academies. Learn techniques that have been used for centuries, including how to arrange and draw the posing model.
Session 2: Sudden Bodies
Life drawing often requires models to practice endurance, posing motionless for long durations. Capture the energy and natural movements of the model, through a rapid gesture drawing.
Session 2: Unruly Bodies
Unlearn what you know about conventional ways to draw the body. Explore how contemporary artists have created strange, unexpected and rebellious responses to posing models.
