About The Event

Drawing the Figure

Each week this course will focus on an element of figure study. The six week structure of this class will allow the students to benefit from both demonstration and hands-on drawing to provide a solid foundation and confidence in rendering the live model. Figures will be drawn in charcoal on Sommerset drawing paper.

About the instructor 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.
