Monday 29th July to Friday 2nd August

This course is aimed at beginners and more experienced artists who would like to further their understanding of human anatomy. For centuries artists have studied bones, muscles and tendons in order to represent figures in both 2D and 3D form realistically. This course aims to provide you with a portfolio of knowledge that you can use in your own art. Through practical drawing exercises, learning from the Grand Masters, you will find out why surface anatomical landmarks are so important to artists in depicting realistic form. We will also model the main muscles of the human face on a take-home skull replica. Opportunity will be given to put theory into practice by drawing from life during the week.
Materials costs between £15 and £20 to cover skull and modelling clay, paper based resources and maybe a model.
