      It all begins with a brief introduction of the human anatomy while our artist gives you a brief overview of the methods of observation and sketching. You’ll have access to a wide range of drawing tools and materials to explore your creative side in this experimental workshop. Your artist will run you through a series of long and short poses including drawing games and exercises so you get every opportunity to sketch the human form. After a couple of drinks, a few cheeky winks and a good laugh or three you and your friends will bid adieu to your model and head home with a series of unique and fun drawings to remember this run and creatively curious night out.

      What if I don’t get enough time to finish my drawing?

      We’ll make sure you get enough time to finish your drawings, there will be a long pose for everyone to grasp a good drawing of the nude model and some short poses as well. You may feel free to ask the art instructor any questions to get help with your drawing if you’d like some help.

      What will I learn?

      You’ll acquire an understanding and approach of how to get started on human figure drawing – learning observational techniques, understanding the human anatomy and proportion, and developing drawing techniques during the session. Basics elements in drawing human figures will be the main objective: capturing shades and tones, as well as proportion, form and volume.

      What size is the paper that is used?
