Naked Bodies I: The Art of Representing the Nude Figure

Fully Booked

Please state which session you require when booking. Maximum 18 students.

In ‘Naked Bodies I’ students will spend the day studying the human form and how it has been portrayed by artists, such as Titian and Boucher, in the Renaissance and the Rococo periods.  In the afternoon students will put their observations into practice by drawing from a female nude life model. Students must arrive on time and attend the whole day/session and may attend unaccompanied by a teacher.


“Excellent, positive feedback for students, excellent pace, excellent tutor drawing tips and a great range of resources… The students showed improvements in their drawings, all new drawing ideas were well introduced, and the outcomes were of a high standard that can be used in their portfolio.” Teacher

“It has changed my way of thinking when doing a drawing – I will think more deeply about positioning and proportions.” Year 12 Pupil
