“The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.” ~Leonardo da Vinci
Did you know learning to draw figures is pivotal for your overall drawing and observation skills? There’s reason why the renowned Pennsylavania Academy of Fine Arts drills figure drawing into its students during their foundation years. Being able to draw human bodies, like the many artists in our upcoming exhibition, helps one understand how objects around you are put together, and informs most any type of art thereafter.
You can sharpen your skills ASAP with many of the available life model workshops around Philly, including:
Philadelphia Sketch Club
Fleisher Art Memorial
Or, just bring a sketchbook with you next time you’re hanging around a coffee shop!
Or better yet, do a couple master copies of the works at Constructing a Body.
