STAT2 Anatomy for Artists with Simon Hemsley

9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Studio 3: Stirling Street Arts Centre, Bunbury Western Australia


Anatomy drawing class: beginners’ life drawing workshop for adults.

In this workshop Simon will teach basic anatomical drawing using a skeleton then apply this understanding to the human form using a live model for the second half of the session. The class will focus on the muscles and bones just below the surface to help understand how anatomy is fundamental to the portrayal of the human body.

As Simon demonstrates his approach, you will learn:

  • Using charcoal
  • Wax candle & wash techniques
  • Perspective
  • Foreshortening

Materials list (or pay $5 on the day to use SSAC basic materials):

  • Charcoal and pencils (2b and 4b)
  • Coloured pencils (watercolour if possible), pastels or oil crayons depending on your preference
  • A soft kneadable eraser
  • Your own boards. I suggest 600x 900x 5mm MDF board which is about $6 from Bunnings. The board should be clean and free of blemishes.
  • Clips to hold your paper on the board


This class will run from 9.00am to 1.00pm.
