Course Description: Develop your own creative practice on this one-day drawing course exploring the most common subject in European art: the human body. Looking at figures entwined in combat or embrace, our focus for the day will be the spatial and emotional relationship between multiple bodies, and the potential for making exciting and dramatic drawings.

Through close observation of masterworks in the Collection including Baroque sculpture and paintings by Boucher and Le Moine, we’ll experiment with speed and mark-making to support longer periods of drawing. You’ll be guided through several exercises that will help you to understand the basic structure of the figures, capture the twists and tensions of the body, and locate the visual centre-point of a complex pose.

In the afternoon, working with more advanced materials, you’ll be supported in a sustained drawing exercise to develop a two-figure composition, exploring tone and colour to help unify your intertwined forms.

Please read the full course outline here, which includes joining information and details of the materials and equipment you will require to participate in this online practical course.

This course is part of a series on drawing the figure, including the Female Nude (28 November 2020) and the Male Nude (30 January 2021), which can be booked individually or as a series.
