In this rigorous two-day workshop acclaimed tutor and author of ‘Figure Drawing’ Jake Spicer will lead you through structural approaches to drawing the figure taken from his book. Combining practical exercises, demonstrations and personal feedback this hands-on workshop is suitable for people with some previous life drawing experience looking to develop their skills further and for more experienced artists seeking to refresh their practice.
The session will start at 10am and you are welcome to arrive from 9:45am.
