Life Drawing

Life Drawing is a means of learning and developing drawing skills by sketching the human figure using a live model as reference. The practice allows students and established Artists to improve their observational skills, style and technique or simply make studies for a finished piece. There are numerous classes, academies and workshops dedicated to life drawing where students will, typically, sit around a model in a circle, each having a unique angle and perspective of the usually nude figure with the main aim of focusing on recording anatomy, proportion or capturing movement.
