Time & Location
About The Event
A six week intensive workshop on drawing the figure from life using classical and academic techniques with artist Eric Drummond. Each week this course will focus on an element of figure study.

Figures will be drawn in charcoal on arches or strathmore drawing paper.
About Eric Drummond
After studying Art History at the University of Guelph, Eric was accepted and enrolled at The Florence Academy of Art in 2016. There he was taught to draw and paint the figure from life and compose portraits and still lifes, using the traditional methods and practices developed by the old masters. Eric works only from life. Staying true to the sight size method developed by the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France in the 1800s, he largely crafts his own materials, and hand preps his own canvases. Working from life allows Eric total creative control and interpretation of his subjects.
