COURSE OVERVIEW

An artist who understands artistic anatomy is free to focus on the expressive character and rhythm of their figure drawing instead of struggling to make it look like a figure. Learn simple anatomical concepts that will enable you to visualise any part of the body, in any action, from any direction, and ultimately to grasp the essential action of the figure in a few confident lines. Beginners will focus on the structure of the skeleton, but content is flexible for those with prior knowledge.

TEACHER PROFILE

Dr David Briggs trained at the Julian Ashton Art School, Sydney. He specialises in life drawing and painting and in relating modern scientific knowledge to artistic colour theory. He has taught art classes since 1996 at many institutions, including six years as the life drawing instructor for Disney’s Sydney studio and classes in drawing and art history and theory at the National Art School. He is the author of an extensive website on the theory and practice of colour for painters, The Dimensions of Colour.
