Learn how to draw the anatomical and structural forms of the front and back torso and hands as well as the use of tonal values, using Michelangelo’s ‘Studies for the Sistine Ceiling and the Tomb of Pope Julius II and the famous ‘Studies for the Libyan Sibyl’ as your examples.

Drawings by great master draftsmen such as Michelangelo, Raphael and Rubens have been regarded for centuries, as the best examples of art for people to study.

Weimin He, the artist-in-residence of the Green Templeton College and life-drawing tutor of the Ruskin School, will help you to investigate the concepts and skills of the great masters’ drawings and reveal the hidden principles which underpinned their work.

This workshop is designed for intermediate to advanced levels.

Materials you will need:

  • A3/A2 sketchbook or papers
  • Two or more 2B – 6B pencils
  • A kneadable eraser
  • A sharpener

This workshop is the second of a series. Each must be booked separately.
