Life Drawing and Life Painting course

Learn how to draw and paint the human figure from observation of a live model

The nude in Art

This course deals with visual understanding by direct observation of the human body and it includes the acquisition of basic notions of anatomy as well as the methodology used to draw bodies and faces.

Students will practice with the main drawing tools, i.e. graphite, charcoal, sanguine, pen-and-ink, pastel crayon. No specific artistic skills or background are required.

On every session students will draw from either female or male models posing in the nude (2 hours). Quick poses will aim at teaching the sketch technique while longer poses will intend to develop the study of anatomy and of shades as well as the student’s observation abilities.

The Life Drawing Course has a variable duration and can be combined with our Drawing and Painting course.

Please note: classes are held both in Italian or English.
