Human Figure: Long Pose


The drawing of the human figure is key when learning the Sight-Size method in the Barcelona Academy of Art.

On Saturday morning sessions, students will work with the same model, who will keep the same pose during a whole academic term. This way, students have enough time to accurately observe and understand the complexity of the human form working from life.
