Level: All Levels 
Tutor: Karly Allen

Course Description: Develop your own creative practice on this one-day drawing course exploring the most common subject in European art: the human body. Focusing on the female nude, through close study of our masterworks and guided drawing exercises, you’ll become familiar with the archetypal classical poses associated with Venus, goddess of love and beauty, which are frequently reinvented in art and life-drawing studios.

We’ll establish the building blocks of form, balance and proportion through a series of exercises that will help you explore the female figure in standing, seated and reclining poses. We’ll take time for detailed looking and to discuss the different qualities of each pose, the challenges they bring, and strategies for capturing them successfully.

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 Male Nude (30 January 2021) and Gods Entwined (27 March 2021), which can be booked individually or as a series.
