Step Into Leonardo's Shoes Anatomy Drawing Workshop 5-day Workshop to take place February 5-9, 2007. Want to draw human anatomy specimens? The University of New South Wales (Sydney) is offering the rare opportunity to draw real human specimens in the School of Medical Sciences (Faculty of Medicine). Under the guidance of Dr Brian Freeman, associate professor of anatomy, and artist Susan Dorothea White, author of Draw Like Da Vinci (Cassell, London 2006), you discover what's under the skin while acquiring new drawing skills.
You draw embalmed body parts (blood-free) that are displayed on tables in a spacious, well-lit anatomy laboratory. Personalised instruction is provided in an informal atmosphere. All levels are welcome, from beginners to professionals; you draw at your own pace. The figure in art history is discussed with reference to art from diverse cultures, from the work of Leonardo himself, to Rodin, Alice Neel, Jenny Saville, and Hokusai. Topics include: muscles, tendons, fascia, joints, bones, movement, expression, human development, perspective, proportion, and the golden section. Comprehensive course notes are provided, as well as refreshments during tea-breaks.
Places are limited - please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information/registration. Local or campus accommodation is available at reasonable rates for overseas and interstate participants.
