Figure Drawing

Figure Drawing

Figure drawing is the basis of all good draftsmanship and drawing from life is the backbone of LARA’s process.

It is our belief that figure drawing is the basis of all good draftsmanship and, for this reason, drawing from life is the backbone of LARA’s process. Every student will spend half the day studying the figure using the ‘sight-size’ method. Each pose is sustained for either two or four weeks, under unvarying natural north light conditions, thus allowing the student time to accurately observe and understand the figure. This drawing from a continuous pose is unique in London. Such training and observation also gives the student informed knowledge as to what to choose as useful on quicker poses.
