 Anatomical Sketch and Drawing Study (30th Evening)

This is a special workshop for anatomical study, presented and guided by a professional art model herself.

Even if you study human body anatomy academically, could you practically apply it on your drawing? This is a great chance to understand how human structure and muscles change the forms when lifted and twisted.
We will tape model's body along her body structure, observe how they shift, and sketch the figure based on the taped clues.

Suited for all levels, beginners to advanced. Please be noted all the guidance and Q&As are provided only in Japanese.
