What will I learn?

Classical figure drawing is underpinned by several core elements. This workshop will guide through a carefully designed series of life drawing exercises to help you develop your capacity for: Form, the sense of three dimensionality, Gesture, the sense of implied movement, exertion or weight; Design, the aesthetic rhythms or patterns that make a drawing interesting and enjoyable, and Artistic Anatomy: the patterns of hard and soft tissue in the body that make a drawing feel authentic and real. Poses will range from very short, to several hours, and we will cover a range of drawing strategies and media.

Who is this workshop suitable for?

This workshop is most suitable for Intermediate and above. The life drawing activities we will be doing are approachable even for beginners. However, you will be greatly helped by a working knowledge of drawing form, ie 3D volumes. If this is not familiar to you, there is a series of illustrated notes and activities that you can prepare with in the online notes that you will be given access to with enrolment.

What do I need to bring?


Please bring your lunch and snacks or you can purchase from cafes close by. We do have a fridge and microwave at the studio for your convenience.

What is provided?

• tea, coffee and biscuits (please bring your own cup)
• a friendly, supportive and encouraging learning environment
• connection to the Brisbane Painting Classes art community
