‘Drawing is the soul of all great art, and drawing the human form is at its core.‘
This four-day workshop will cover the principles and practices of Master Draughtsman during the Renaissance, Baroque, and 18th Century. We will decode Da Vinci, demystify Durer, reveal Raphael, and unmask the methods of Michelangelo.
In the mornings, Michael will give demonstrations that guide attendees through each step practically and logically. We will draw from live models in the afternoon, with critiques given upon request during model breaks. Michael will give a recap at the end of each session.
You will learn-how-to-learn to draw well-proportioned, well-constructed Drawings that contain the essence of Life.
