Summer School 2020


The Russian academic approach to figure drawing and painting


Registration of interest


In this Summer School I teach my understanding of Russian academic figure drawing and painting as taught to me by Professors of Drawing and Painting at the I. Repin Russian Academy of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, Russia. In July 2018 I studied academic figure drawing and painting at the Russian Academy’s Summer School.


In my Summer School I teach the methods, materials, techniques and purposes underpinning Russian academic drawing and painting of the figure. Students work from life models. Students make 2 portraits (1 painting and 1 drawing), and 2 full figure studies (1 painting and 1 drawing). The medium for painting is oil. Drawings are in graphite pencil on stretched paper.
