Speaker information

Dr Chiara Ambrosio, Lecturer in History and Philosophy of Science, UCL Department of Science & Technology Studies

Artists and scientists take a variety of approaches to drawing the human figure. They may draw from live models, from anatomical or skeletal models or from specimens. In the Life and Death Drawing workshop, we question how the nature of the model affects the practice of drawing and the understanding of drawings itself? Join us to practice your drawing skills by sketching from a life model, from anatomical models and from other works of art in this evening workshop facilitated by Dr Chiara Ambrosio, Lecturer in History and Philosophy of Science.

The class is suitable for adults of all levels, from beginners to more confident artists. All materials are provided.
