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.
