Figure Drawing summer course

16:00 - 19:00

Learn the basics of figure drawing in Absalon!

A course where you can focus on improving your drawing skills three days in a row. We’ll try different methods and styles. You don’t need any experience to join this course.


Monday the 1st of August – Movement
We will look into gesture drawing and how to show movement in a figure drawing. We will study methods for drawing movement in the renaissance, baroque and comic books. We will work with short poses and loose drawings.


Tuesday the 2nd of August – Volume
This day is about
drawing volume by going cross-axis over the gestures, how to draw through the figure and important anatomical points to help determine where the volume should start and stop. This will be done with just a line.


Wednesday the 3rd of August – Rendering
We will learn about rendering; the process of putting down tone to make things look volumetric by light and shadow. This includes both indirect and direct light.
