Drawing the Figure: Apollo and the Male Nude

Date: Saturday 30 January 2021
Times: 11.00-16.30
Location: Zoom (Online)
Level: All Levels 
Tutor: Karly Allen

Course Description: Develop your own creative practice on this one-day drawing course exploring the most common subject in European art: the human body. Focusing on the male nude, through close study of our masterworks and guided drawing exercises, you’ll become familiar with its long history and idealisation in art, from youthful Apollo and heroic Hercules, to ageing river gods.

Taking the classical standing nude as our starting point, we’ll help you learn the basics of proportion and balance by reducing complex structures into simplified forms. Then focusing on more dynamic, twisting poses, you’ll explore the quality and direction of lines through the body and introduce shading and foreshortening to your work.

Please read the full course outline here, which includes joining information and details of the materials and equipment you will require to participate in this online practical course.

This course is part of a series on drawing the figure, including the Female Nude (28 November 2020) and Bodies Entwined (27 March 2021), which can be booked individually or as a series.
