Posterior Torso Anatomical Figure Drawing Workshop

The next Anatomical Figure Drawing workshop at the Palette & Chisel Academy of Fine Arts has been scheduled! This workshop will focus on the anatomy of the posterior torso, which includes bony landmarks of the spine and scapula and the complex musculature of the back. It will be held on Sunday, March 23 from 9:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

Like the others, this workshop includes three hours of intensive figure drawing from a live model and a simultaneous lecture on the associated anatomy, including identification of bony and muscular surface landmarks, comparison of these to anatomical images, and discussion of each feature's variations. We will have a fantastic model with a very defined physique.

Each workshop is $40, which covers the instruction, the space, and the model. Class size is limited to 12, and a supply list will be emailed to you upon registration. I would love to see you there! To register, go to the sign-up page here, or click on the image above.

The Palette and Chisel is located at 1012 N. Dearborn in Chicago. It is easily accessible from either the red or brown el trains and from the CTA bus. Parking within a few blocks is also fairly easy on Sunday mornings.
