Online | Drawing Anatomy with Monika Diak

This is a course that practises drawing the anatomy looking at the human figure and detailed parts such as the head or hands. With a structured approach to life drawing, your tutor will guide you through the essential elements of how to successfully draw the human body. As this class is online this term, there will not be a live model this term. The tutor will focus on anatomy and drawing the body from references of work by the masters.

What to expect

Students will work from a range of photographic references and master drawings each week.

What will you achieve?

Students will learn to:

  • Capture the individual gesture and weight of a pose
  • Measure and judge proportions effectively
  • Simplify anatomical masses
  • Understand form and volume in relation to the human figure
  • Understand methods for shading the complex form of a human figure.

Is this course right for me?

This course is suitable for enthusiastic beginners to those with prior experience. Beginners will be guided through exercises and those with prior experience will be encouraged to extend their skills with more challenges.
