The day of 20 June was set aside for life drawing, nudes and the body. During the afternoon at the Draftsmen’s Congress students from the Fine Arts Academy of Rome have practiced their skills, drawing two nude models.
The classic dynamic of the academic lesson has been redefined and revised in the framework of the Congress: starting with the famous nudes of the occidental art tradition, the participants have been stimulated to abandon canonical techniques and spaces – usually protected and individual – of life drawing. They have directly express themselves on the walls of the Congress, in an environment influenced by multiple, unpredictable and heterogeneous interventions of all the participants.
