Drawing Intensive - Cast and Figure | Andrew Bonneau

Join 2017 Archibald prize finalist and nationally recognised realist artist, Andrew Bonneau, for 5 full days of intensive drawing instruction.

Focusing on cast and figure drawing, Andrew will give you the tools to approach any subject with confidence and truly extend your knowledge and ability in representational drawing.

What will I learn?

Each morning you will be working from plaster casts of antique sculpture and in the afternoons, drawing from a life model.
You will explore in depth aspects of drawing such as proportion, gesture, anatomy, light and shade, conceptualising form and perspective. The aim will be to produce drawings that are proportionally accurate and naturalistic, with a solid understanding of structure, light and shadow.
