The Mark Anthony Drawing Group
The Mark Anthony drawing group study program is specifically designed to help artists and enthusiasts develop an extensive comprehension and understanding of visual truths. This objective enables them to successfully work in a live-model environment with great confidence. Entrants enjoy building upon a clear practical and logical fundamental foundation from structure to finishing all within an inspiring environment of classical dance.
Classical Beauty in its most elegant form
We honour the great 19th century French master Edgar Degas who turned the art world on its head by defining beauty in the most expressive way through impressionistic depictions of classical dance at the Paris Opera Ballet. Join Mark Anthony as he gently leads you into a live-model study in poetic realism using dancers in traditional poses and positions. This relaxed workshop builds upon the principles underlying the great visual understanding of the classically trained Mr. Degas and his powerful way of expressing his love for the human form. Each entrant will enjoy brief lectures on basic drawing, light, form, proportion, anatomy, drapery and composition.
