Outline

Friday 23 February 2018 | For 5th and 6th year school pupils

The surface form of the human body is created by the complex layers under the skin. In this session you will learn about how the human skeleton, muscles and tendons work together and how their surface forms can be used by artists as 'landmarks' when drawing the human figure.

A short lecture on human anatomy will be followed by a life drawing workshop where you will learn about how you can use these landmarks in your own drawing.
