Figure drawing workshop

via Liguria, 20

15.30 - 19.30

The day of 20 June is 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 will practice their skills, drawing two nude models.
The classic dynamic of the academic lesson will be redefined and revised in the framework of the Congress: starting with the famous nudes of the occidental art tradition, the participants will be stimulated to abandon canonical techniques and spaces – usually protected and individual – of life drawing. They will directly express themselves on the walls of the Congress, in an environment influenced by multiple, unpredictable and heterogeneous interventions of all the participants.
