Dr. Paul Richer's Anatomical Drawing

Instructor: Allana Benham

Join us for an in-depth course in the structure of the human body. Dr. Richer's approach has helped to shape the entire field of artistic anatomy since his first book, Anatomie Artistique, was published in 1890. This course will sharpen your perception of the body and teach you to approach the figure with greater sensitivity and understanding whether you are working from photo reference or from life.
