Sketching figures - London

  • Royal Academy of Arts 181 Piccadilly England, W1J 0BG United Kingdom (map)

Royal Academy of Arts, London

FEE : £45 - in advance.
OPTION : £18 for the exhibition about Viola and Michaelangelo
* Travel and food expenses not included

This workshop is for anyone who is interested in drawing figures, and the human body.

The idea of this day comes from the recurrent request of my students who are keen on learning how to paint and draw little figures in their art work. This day should help :)
No experience needed !

Immerse yourself for a day in sketching figures that you observe all around you. As a warm up exercise, we will sketch in the train and in the street, then we will carry on practising in the museum, learning from Viola and Michaelangelo's art work (exhibition), we will reflect on the human condition and the participants will be guided to create a few sketches exploring the use of the body in expressing emotional states, and we will compare our contemporary learning with our 18th century predecessors who had anatomy classes !

Those who decide not to visit the Life Death Rebirth exhibition, they will be given another option of free visit with a theme appropriate to the day.
