VIRTUAL | Book Now

Tune in and draw along in these virtual workshops with artist Dr Bill Platz. Discover tips for approaching drawing and take inspiration from artworks in ‘European Masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York’. You’ll be virtually transported to Bill’s studio and invited to draw from live costumed models.

Session 3 | The Dark Manner

Two defining features of the life drawing studio are its darkness and stillness. Taking inspiration from the dramatic intensity of dark and light in Baroque paintings, explore techniques for amplifying darkness in your drawing, as live models emerge from and disappear into the shadows.
