This Nude Life Figure Drawing Workshop is taught by our resident artist instructor who will guide you to draw and sketch a life nude model.

Learn proportion, form and composition, and acquire life drawing and sketching skills whether you are a beginner or an advanced art learner!

A combination of short and long poses may proceed in the session. More importantly, our experienced art instructor will ensure that everyone is able to receive guidance and tips of life drawing and sketching and complete an artwork during the 2.5 hours session.

Nude life figure drawing is important to an artist’s practice as a deeper understanding of the human figure can only be attained through experience and practise. The ability to depict the human torso and its many gestures and even motion requires advanced drawing and sketching techniques and a lot of life drawing and sketching practice! Nude life drawing is suitable for beginners too, and you need not to fear the intimidating subject! Our art instructor is here to guide and help you and a lot of beginners join our Nude Life Drawing course too! Do challenge yourself and give this a try, especially if you love nude art!
