This summer, I took an excellent PAFA Life Drawing workshop at the bucolic Historic Yellow Springs location. We were working in the Chester Springs Studio, and old stone barn that was converted into an art studio. Our instructor John Horn accurately described it as "art heaven."
The focus of the class was how to use the classic proportions of the human body in life drawing. Here's John (and his assistant) giving us some guidelines on the major landmarks of the body.
For a short weekend course, I found it to be very illuminating. We also had some excellent models posing for us. I look forward to testing out some of my new knowledge the next time I attend a life drawing session.
