Learn sight-size cast drawing and the key principles of all representational drawing. Using a sight-size set up and methods taught on our full-time course, students will create a competent reproduction of a cast of their choice. Students will be guided through the process of drawing from the cast from start to finish including set up and lighting advice so that they may recreate a similar arrangement at a later date.

Since the Renaissance cast drawing has been fundamental to artistic training across Europe. Artists as diverse as Rembrandt, Ingres and David all championed cast drawing as an essential part of their education.

At LARA we take cast drawing very seriously. We understand it to be a highly effective way to develop an artist’s draughtsmanship and for this reason our full and part-time students spend half of their drawing day in the cast room, working on projects of increasing complexity.

This Cast Drawing Workshop will be an intensive introduction to the practice of sight-size cast drawing. Students of all abilities are welcome to attend and each student will receive the attention and instruction they require to move their drawing skills to the next level.This Short Course would be a perfect introduction to representational drawing (particularly for those unsure of the challenge of drawing the live model #drawntolife!), a great refresher for the more experienced artist or a fantastic insight into life as a student at LARA.
