Patrick J. Jones Figure Drawing Workshop

As a special treat this Summer, Syn Studio will be conducting a 3-week Online Figure Drawing Workshop with Master Artist Patrick J. Jones, an award winning artist, author and teacher. Patrick has worked as an illustrator for book covers by famous authors such as H.G. Wells and as a concept artist for Lucasfilm and Disney Studios on titles such as Peter Pan.

During this workshop, students will learn Patrick’s unique approach to drawing the figure based on structure, gesture and anatomy, titled “The Anatomy of Style.” The tools and methods taught during the workshop will strengthen the students’ understanding of the figure drawing process, enabling them to create stronger, more tightly rendered and visually appealing stylistic figure drawings.

Only 15 spaces are available for this exclusive workshop and they are expected to sell out very quickly!
