Life drawing is the act of drawing the human figure from a live (often nude) model. Widely considered an essential component of an artist's education, life drawing trains the simultaneous workings of the eyes, the brain and the hand.
Through life drawing, an artist hones his ability to simultaneously and instinctively respond and interpret what his eyes are seeing through his or her emotions, intellect and unique gift. And because the model in life drawing is human, the artist grows in his capacity to appreciate the irrevocable truth that ties the spirit specie of Man, and that is, “we were all molded by the same hand and formed by the same material hence we belong to the same family, the human race.”
