Come and learn the basics of figure drawing in Absalon!

This course is for you if you would like to work on your drawing skills.
We’ll meet four times and step by step work on different topics for creating a wholesome figure drawing. You don’t need any experience to join this course, as long as you feel like working on your drawing skills.


Sunday the 23th of October – Movement
We will be talking about gesture drawing and how to get movement in a figure drawing. The different methods for getting movement in renaissance, baroque, and a few comic book styles will be shown. This will be with short poses and loose drawings.


Sunday the 30th of Ocober – Volume
e will start to talk about drawing volumes by going cross axis over the gestures, how to draw through the figure and important anatomical points to help determine where specific volumes start and stop. This will all be done just with line.


Sunday the 6th of Novemer – Rendering
We will learn about rendering; the process of putting down tone to make things look volumetric by light and shadow. This will include both in direct and direct light.


Sunday the 13th of November – The final touch
We will talk about how to use overlapping lines, rendering lines and simple wash tones to combine all the other days in a figure study, looking especially at the Baroque artists of Venice.
