About Drawing Casts

Drawing casts is essential to artists developing their drawing skills. It is one of the common methods of learning classical drawing. With a pure white plaster cast - there is no color to distract the artist, simply form conveyed through light and shadow affecting the form. Without light - we would not really see form very well, so essentially in bringing dramatic light into the mix with a pure white cast - it gives us more to see (and draw).

Instructor James Andrews will guide students through a brief history lesson of cast drawing, and train students utilizing some eye training exercises. Casts will be provided by the instructor.
