Past event

Under the skin: Life drawing workshop

RCP museum is partnering with London Drawing for the second year on a creative life drawing class inspired by the history of anatomical illustration to coincide with the exhibition: Under the skin: Illustrating the human body 

Life drawing workshop

Including a guided tour of the exhibition, draw from life with a live model and explore the fabric of the human body from the inside out with a series of guided drawing and creative techniques including chalk and charcoal, quick draw exercises, paper cutting and collage.

Observe in the exhibition how physicians, artists and printmakers have developed tools and techniques to illustrate human anatomy, creating Masterpieces of art and science and communicating what is hidden inside the human form. Then take to the easel yourself to experiment with some of these techniques!
