Reading the Body | Roberto Osti @ Studio Incamminati
The emphasis of this workshop will be on the aesthetic and dynamic aspects of the human figure.
Starting from the structural, layered method developed during the Renaissance and moving on to the expressive aspects of the human figure at rest and in movement, the students will learn to “read” and recognize the body’s structural and anatomical characteristics, allowing the artist to employ an “active” interpretation of the human figure rather than a mimetic or passive one.
Each class will begin with a 1-hour lecture followed by a 5-hour figure drawing session with live models, alternating male and female models each day.
Roberto Osti, who holds a BA in Anatomical and Surgical Drawing from the University of Bologna (Italy) and an MFA from the New York Academy of Fine Arts, has taught Figure Anatomy and Figure Drawing. He is the author of “Basic Human Anatomy,” The Monacelli Press.
