Life drawing is at the core of any serious program of fine arts. In the class, students draw from the figure in pencil. Each drawing is created over a period of several sessions, developing the student's eye for accurate proportions, gesture and anatomy.

Figure Drawing with Emphasis on Structure and Conceptualized Form
Over a period of five days, students will create a figure drawing from life on toned paper using graphite, charcoal, and white chalk. They will be guided through the process clearly and methodically. This will include a discussion of how to analyze the pose before beginning, how to create a block-in that emphasizes gesture, accurate proportion and key structural and anatomical points, and finally how to render the form based on the light source and a sculptural understanding of the model. Class size is limited to 10 participants.
August 19-23, 2019, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM (1-hour lunch break at 12:00)
$500 for entire workshop. Limit 10 students.
