In this 6-week class you will learn the fundamentals of figurative drawing. The class will provide a solid foundation which will enable you to establish a confident approach to constructing a figurative work, or perfect your existing technique. Through the structure and anatomy of the human figure, we will study the basic skills of drawing (line, form, tone) which are the building blocks for all future artistic endeavor. Working from a live model will enable you to see, analyze and begin to gain a mastery of the human form.
This class is suitable for all levels – beginner or experienced – the instructor provides individual attention within the context of a supportive class environment. Materials are not included but can be purchased online at VisARts and will be in the classroom at the first class, or you may buy them at any art supply store.
