Drawing the human figure from life is perhaps the most challenging subject an artist can face. This 10-week course introduces the classical approach to life drawing, following a manageable step-by-step procedure and slowly unravelling this complex subject matter. It will provide you with a good grounding in the structure and anatomy of the human body, an understanding of how the Old Masters worked, familiarity with working from a live model, and many basic drawing skills.Find Out More

Be inspired and travel to the very source of classical drawing and painting in Europe,
and join one of our international workshops.
By the end of each course or workshop, you will have gained a very good understanding and appreciation for the methods and techniques involved in classical drawing or painting, as well as its historical context and how it can benefit your own work regardless of your style.
Learn the rules like a professional, so you can break them like an artist.

As well as being a guide to traditional atelier (or ‘studio’) practice, our courses and workshops also aim to contribute to your own contemporary work by investigating four of the key components that comprise almost all visual art: design, line, value and form, and then applying what you’re learning to your own expressive end. By improving your technical skills and gaining a greater understanding of these timeless principles, you’ll be able to see your own work in a new light.
