This workshop, in which you will work from a live model, will provide you with the foundation to develop a sophisticated and nuanced understanding of artistic anatomy, and its application.

The course will be framed in relation to the atelier method of sight-size drawing, and will emphasise how an anatomically informed eye can be of benefit in assessing the visual impression of the figure.

Anatomy is an essential component for high level work from life; this masterclass is a rare opportunity for some personalised guidance through this complex subject.

Our model will hold the same pose for the whole five days. The first hour of each day will be an anatomy demonstration, based on scan data of a figure in the same pose as the one we are working with. This model can be manipulated in various ways to illustrate key anatomical principles.

The focus will be on surface form with a particular emphasis on fat distribution.

Students will receive a pdf copy of all demos at the end of the course.
