Sadie teaches her classical approach to figure drawing in this comprehensive demonstration as she works from the live model on an 8-hour pose with chalk and charcoal on toned paper.

As one of the foremost classical art educators in the US, not only does Sadie demonstrate her ability to make a stunning drawing, but she also diagrams and explains everything she is thinking about “behind the scenes” so viewers can truly understand what goes into creating an impactful figure drawing.

The result is a dramatic, glowing drawing as Sadie captures the dynamic pose of one of her favorite artistic collaborators, model Christina Linskey.
