Join Mark Anthony and learn the essentials for life drawing!
Vacation is over. It’s time to work! Join Mark Anthony as he takes you through a simple yet systematic approach to developing the figure from ground up using anatomical structure. You will see how great masters would have exploited anatomical understanding to achieve dynamic proportional accuracy leading to expressive, realistic gestural drawings. The bottom line . . . . There is nothing accidental about a good drawing from life. You will learn the difference between copying and interpreting what you see. For all levels. Demos will begin from a blank paper. Entrants should come with a small drawing pad for sketching and note taking. You will learn a step-by-step approach to proportional understanding which will provide a basis for quick and accurate drawing from life.
For over 30 years, Mark Anthony’s great passion for artistic tradition complimented with his own strong European roots has lead him into a career in representational drawing based on the poetic charm of the old-world European studio. His professional work history includes owning and operating a small Alberta based portrait studio/gallery, working with private, historical and municipal heritage projects, and teaching hundreds of students of all levels in the grand tradition of observational and classical drawing. www.markanthonystudio.com
