This seminar will guide participants through the fundamentals of Academic Drawing from a live model using the Sight-Size method of measuring with reference to human anatomy. Participants will attend a series of presentations on the stages of Academic Drawing and the relevant anatomical knowledge necessary for the construction of an accurate human figure.
During this process the participants will be individually guided through demonstrations and critiques so as to develop a better understanding of:
• Blocking and Constructive Lines
• Shadow Line and Shadow Shapes
• Form and Tones
• Light Effect
Due to the fact that special individual attention will be given to guide participants, the workshop will cater for interested individuals, irrespective of their age, previous knowledge or experience.

This workshop is suitable for students preparing a portfolio for Schools of Fine Arts, university students of similar disciplines seeking specialisation in specific fields and finally, amateur and professional artists who want to enrich their skillset.
