'Michelangelo: the last decades' at the British Museum

We're pleased to be working with the British Museum on their highly anticipated exhibition, Michelangelo: the last decades. Together we have developed two live online drawing events which will take students into the heart of Michelangelo's life and work. The tutor-led sessions featuring images from the exhibition, exclusive insights from curators and a live model, will allow you to get under the skin of Michelangelo’s work.

Life Drawing: Michelangelo
In partnership with the British Museum
Online (Zoom)

Through a series of practical life drawing exercises led by experienced tutors students will gain a greater understanding of Michelangelo as an artist and a person. We will look at how he approached drawing the figure, how we might also draw with some of his explosive inventiveness, and consider how the act of drawing might be turned into a means of spiritual meditation.

By drawing through the eyes of the great artist, we can deepen our own understanding of why Michelangelo’s drawings are some of the most important in art history, and find ways in which we might challenge and feed our own artistic practice.
