with G Caruso
Explore figure drawing techniques across different eras and cultures with master figurative artist G Caruso.
Figure drawing has been part of the human artistic expression since the origins of society and culture. We will take a journey across history and the globe to observe and learn how the human body has been represented and how. We will learn different figure drawing styles and take inspiration from classical art and old masters alike.
This workshop is useful for anyone that is interested in drawing or painting the figure. Whether your goal is to paint Renaissance style portraits in oil or create graphic characters on the computer, learning from art history is one of your most powerful tools. During this overview, you will discover tips and tricks, stylistic flourishes and material innovations that have been used by other artists and that you can adapt for your own work.
