Figure Drawing Basics: Sessions 1 and 2

This month we’ll be getting back to basics. Maybe it's been a long time since you've drawn from the model and want to sharpen up, or if you love drawing but don't even know where to begin this course is for you. We’ll cover gesture drawing, using abstract shapes to construct figures, using geometric solids, foreshortening, perspective, and balance. Brief mentions of line weight, mark-making, and how to use value will be included.

Session 1 - 10am - 1pm     $50
Session 2 - 2pm - 5pm      $50

Sign up for either session or both. Each student, in each session will have one-on-one instruction as we work through our drawings.

You will need:
18x24 drawing paper, 18x24 News print, a drawing board suitable for paper of that size, soft charcoal, drawing pencils and an eraser. Some spare supplies will be provided, but please bring what you need to work.
