Neophytes will welcome this opportunity to gain a sound introduction to figure drawing; professionals will value this focused five-day workshop to sharpen tools grown dull through neglect. Subjects discussed will be: hiring, posing and lighting the model; exploring the exquisite relationship between media and working surfaces; using correct drawing posture in addresing the format.
