Special Workshop 
Anatomical Sketch and Drawing Study
(Holiday the 21st and 22nd)

Instructor: Hiroshi Harashima
Model: Japanese woman

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 draw lines on the model's body along her body structure, observe how they shift, and sketch the figure based on the taped clue lines.

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

On the 21st, we will have an instructor who is an author of popular technological books of anatomy tutoring us. We usually focus on bone structure but we study about muscles as well as bones this time. The instructor will give us a brief explanation based on anatomy and answer our questions. still this is a practical workshop and we will spare a lot of time for practical drawing. The instructor will give us a demonstration of sketching a skeletal frame looking at the model. 

The following day of the 22nd will be our normal anatomical sketch study, but we focus on upper body in the afternoon and lower body in the evening. You are welcome to join a session or two, as a review of the lessons on the previous day, or as a practice of your own study.
