A Life Drawing & Anatomy class that will help bring your Drawing to the next level. Over eight weeks we will look at the different stages for developing solid drawing habits through a variety of techniques, in depth lectures and demos. With weekly Anatomy demonstrations we will develop our understanding of how it plays a part in our choices. We will also discuss and develop our sense of gesture, design language, transitional forms, foreshortening, composition, lighting and drapery as well as looking at problem areas and how to resolve them. This will include drawing time with a model as we explore these ideas.

Single sessions are now available for those that want to brush up on a particular piece of anatomy or concept. Each class is broken down into two sections, Concepts and Anatomy with demos for each.

Week 1- Fundamentals, Gesture and creating a solid drawing process. The relationship between the upper and lower torso.

Artistic and Creative Development Programs

Classes are taught in either six week, ten week, one day masterclasses or three hour workshops. In each class we'll be covering a variety of topics and techniques to help better understand how to approach Figure Drawing and how Anatomy plays a role in our decision making as we draw.

From Game and Film studios looking to enhance their Artistic Development Programs to teaching facilities looking for masterclasses as well as community workshops, we’re happy to discuss a custom training program that fits your needs. 


“It’s useful for us to understand that learning to draw the figure is not only about figure drawing, it’s about learning to observe, and communicate an idea with emotion and clarity. While the figure is a framework and vehicle to express those ideas, these skills can be transferred to any area or discipline within art. So you see, there is more to figure drawing than just figure drawing! If you can draw the figure you can draw anything, but not because you’ve learnt to draw the figure but because you’ve learnt how to see!”
— Richard Smitheman
