Russian Academic Figure Drawing

Published on June 10, 2019

ARC Approved Princeton Academy of Art is holding a Russian Academic Figure Drawing workshop on June 17th & 18th from 10:30am – 5:30pm.

The workshop explores the human figure as a constructional mechanism in space through the medium of drawing. The primary purpose of the 2-day intensive is to understand anatomy not only as an academic discipline but as the means through which the human figure should be viewed and depicted.  Participants will develop their knowledge of the underlying structures of the human form and use them to draw the model from life. The workshop will consist of a long pose with an emphasis on rendering and learning to tie in structural anatomy with surface form. Participants will also be drawing quick figure sketches to practice capturing the significant anatomical structures responsible for the gesture. During the workshop, Iliya Mirochnik will demonstrate drawing principles for the entire class and provide anatomical explanations and diagrams for each participant individually.

The workshop takes place at Princeton Academy of Art, 138 Nassau St, 2nd Floor, Princeton, NJ 08542.
