Costumed Figure Drawing & Painting
Copyright © Christine Mitzuk

Gain a better understanding of how to portray clothed figures. Emphasis is placed on form, gesture, and underlying structure. We'll explore characteristics of fabric, fold types, and editing nature to serve the picture. Using the sight-size method, students will develop a minimum of 3 (winter) / 2 (summer) costumed figure studies. This class will spend 5 days per pose. Each pose will feature different costuming. Depending on experience, students are welcome to work in pencil, charcoal, or oil paint. Please also bring a plumbline. For classes with Christine, please make checks to C.M. Art Productions, LLC.
