Figure drawing and painting

The course focuses in drawing and painting the human figure from a life model, based on the figurative tradition of the great masters.


At the Barcelona Academy of Art we consider drawing as the most important element and starting point of any artistic development. With the pencil drawing of the human figure, students will initially focus on constructing a short sketch, practicing and applying concepts such as block in, gesture, proportion and accuracy. With charcoal drawing exercises applied to a fixed or long temporality pose, the student is introduced into the work of mass drawing with stains and the wide range of values ​​of chiaroscuro. Once the student is able to master this basic techniques, then s/he is ready to transfer this knowledge to painting.
