Workshop description

The intensive Course of Life Drawing Human Anatomy aims to capture of the main dynamics of human anatomical arrangements in geometric-structural key.

The work of Life Drawing from plaster bust and from the living model allows the student to recognize the geometric structures of the human body. Understanding the various plans that make and build the figure, gives the skillness to better  recognize and draw its multiple manifestations.

The use of this approach in the study of the geometric and structural allows to reach an ever greater mastery of the figure to the point that it is displayed before you even draw it thus fulfilling a fundamental job of foreshadowing that allows you to discover and rediscover the model of what model well known.

Each meeting includes a lecture of anatomic design phase followed by a workshop of drawing from life with statuary and living model and its correction of papers.

The Course will be held in Rome, Italy. Why?

For years students go to Rome to Study the Art, Sculpture, Painting, Architectures and Fine Art. We are immersed in! Its beauty can be seen in every corner, in every view. It is an open-air Museum and is full of Art Galleries which houses major sculptures and paintings dating back to the Ancient Roman Empire, throught to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance up to Contemporary Art. The goal of Arts in Rome is to armonize Art Workshops and Art History visiting in person Museums, Galleries and the Ancient Rome traveling through 2.000 years of history.
