The Russian Academic Drawing Course is a fully immersive online figure drawing course presented by artist Iliya Mirochnik, a graduate of the Repin Academy of Art in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Iliya and the participants will work from images of nude models in a variety of media using Zoom as the collaborative educational platform. This course focuses on medium length (3-hour) figure drawing technique. Students begin with quick sketches of the figure and move on to the 3-hour pose over the course of the class. Iliya Mirochnik will begin the course with a demonstration in which he will explain the basic methods of working from the model and answer questions. Participants can work from the images at the same time. After the initial demonstration, participants will receive images to work from at home and will reconvene with Iliya on a weekly basis for a month. During these sessions Iliya will do critiques of and draw-overs on their work and give assignments for the following week.
