In this Summer School I teach my understanding of Russian academic figure drawing and painting as taught to me by Professors of Drawing and Painting at the I. Repin Russian Academy of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, Russia.

In July 2018 I studied academic figure drawing and painting at the Russian Academy’s Summer School. In my Summer School I teach the methods, materials, techniques and purposes underpinning Russian academic drawing and painting of the figure. Students work from life models.

Rob Gutteridge attended the Summer School of the Russian Academy of Arts to find out for himself what makes Russian academic figure drawing and figure painting so distinctive. Throughout his career, Rob has sought out international opportunities to expand his knowledge and skills as an artist and teacher. At the Russian Academy Rob was taught drawing by Professor M. Molyakov, the Academy’s Professor of Anatomical Drawing. Rob considers himself fortunate in this, as Rob was the first teacher in Australia to revive the lost art (lost to Australia) of écorché (anatomical sculpture of a flayed figure). Rob is an autodidact in the study and teaching of human anatomy for artists, which he now teaches at the RGCR. Read More
