Artists and scientists take a variety of approaches to drawing the human body in movement, working with different aims. With the guidance of specialists from different disciplines, the Life and Death Drawing workshop is a chance to draw from live models, from works of art, from anatomical or skeletal models or from specimens while discussing how the nature of the model affects the practice of drawing and the understanding of drawings itself.
The class is suitable for adults of all levels, from beginners to more confident artists. All materials are provided. Part of Universities Week
