Figure Drawing Workshops are back in the City!

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Figure Drawing Workshops around the city were cancelled for a long time.  Fortunately, they’ve begun to return.  We’ve complied a list of some of the best places to go in Montreal to practice your figure drawing!  However, you will notice that Syn Studio is not on the list.  For now!  Many of you have asked if we are offering figure drawing sessions again but we aren’t quite ready to get these going again for the moment.  We will let you know when we are ready to but in the meantime we still offer all of our great classes and events so come visit our website to see all of our options.

Figure Drawing Workshops provide the perfect avenue to practice anatomy, as well as other fundamentals such as lights and shadows, and perspective. You can train your eye to observe the human body in a physical space, measure the proportions and understand the relationship between the different muscle groups in action.

The varying lengths of time allotted for drawing poses throughout the workshop also provides a unique learning opportunity:

Short poses – Require quick thinking, and will push you to focus on the movement and emotion of a pose.
Long poses – Provide the opportunity for more meticulous work where you can explore shapes and shadows in depth.

Workshops are also a fantastic opportunity to relieve stress, meet fellow artists, pros and amateurs alike, see their own process and artwork, and become a part of the ever-growing Montreal Art community!

For more practice, here is a list of great places that currently conduct regular workshops in Montreal:

“For life drawing addicts who are compelled to feed their habit every Wednesday evening and Saturday morning.”
