About the event

Drawing away the skin: the anatomy of Renaissance portraiture
A drawing master class led by artists Nina Sellars and Carla Bromhead

This class presents portraiture as a way of seeing and aims to gain an understanding of what Leonardo da Vinci observed in his studies of the human head. Through a series of practical drawing exercises many of the underlying principles originating from Leonardo’s study of anatomy, optics and perception are used to construct a portrait drawn from a life model. Participants at all levels are welcome to attend this class.
