Drawing from Life - Fri 19th June
Speaker Martin Beek
The ArtTalks sessions are in UK time using Zoom conferencing
10am - 11am
During this 60 minute talk Martin looks at the practice of life drawing from the renaissance to the present day. The study of the nude has always been a part of the vocabulary of painters, yet it is not always appreciated why it is so important. Life drawing is once again a very popular activity, and this talk will also focus on the benefits of drawing from life for all artists. Martin will demonstrate with slides of great examples of life drawing and figure painting. This includes time for a Q&A session at the end so take the opportunity to ask more about this fascinating period.
