Learn to draw the figure from the inside out! During this workshop you will learn the basics of anatomy, body structure and muscle dynamic that make up a traditional figure drawing foundation. By developing our technique, we open the possibility to really capture on paper the specific gestures and emotions expressed by the model. Figure drawing has always been the primary focus of artist Giulia Caruso and she is ready to share with you her trade secrets.
Working from a live model, as well as from historical examples and live demonstrations, we will cover a range of traditional mediums including: graphite sticks, white and red chalks on toned paper and inks. We will focus on gesture drawing, negative space and relative proportions to achieve an expressive result. We will learn simple ground rules to manage foreshortening, avoid graphic symbolizations and other common issues.
During a Saturday field trip to the Altes Museum we will see how the portrayal of the human body has developed in classic times and make drawings on site from the classical statues.
