Anatomy for Artists was an intensive but rewarding
four-day figurative drawing course which took us from understanding
the core skeletal structures to both the large and small muscle
groups. We worked, under Alan McGowan's instruction, from a rather
'bony' skelton and a life model, which were all accompanied by
down-to-earth instructions, thorough explanations and guidance when
needed. This combination helped hugely when putting everything into
context and, mostly importantly, practice.
I felt somewhat 'rusty' in terms of figurative drawing before
the course by the end I feel I had got a pretty good grasp and much
better understanding of what lay beneath the skin. It is such a
practical and beneficial class it makes me wonder why Anatomy
classes aren't more widely available elsewhere.
