During the course of five sessions each student will construct one portrait so that each lesson can be thoroughly studied and implemented. Beginning with introductory strategies on how to effectively place the proportions of a live model onto paper. The class will then progress to the articulation of form by means of light, perspective, and structure. By sequentially implementing simple to complex concepts students will gain a greater awareness of these foundational elements and their implementation in portrait drawing. In addition, topics pertaining to anatomy and design will be presented and tailored to the needs of each student. Lessons will take the form of demonstrations and individual critiques according to each participant’s needs.

Improve Your Figure Drawing (3 sessions) with Edmond Rochat

Intermediate Figure Drawing (3 sessions) with Artist Edmond Rochat - Mondays, March 20th, 27th and April 3rd 

Students will focus on three main concepts in figure drawing during this course: proportion/gesture, perspective and lighting form. 

Each session starts with a drawing demonstration by the instructor and an exercise for participants to practice. Students will then work from a live figure model for the rest of the session while receiving individual guidance from the instructor. This class is designed to break figure drawing down into clear ideas to create definitive goals so noticeable progress can be gained. By working with clear objectives students should expect to see significant growth in their work. 

Session 1: Proportion/gesture, through exercises and practice students work to train their eyes to see proportion and gesture more clearly giving their figure drawings a more natural feel. 

Session 2: Perspective, students add linear perspective to their drawing to make their figure drawings appear to occupy space and have depth. 

Session 3: Lighting, while a large subject, students will learn how light falls on form and how that can be used to enhance the drama in their work.

Structural Figure Drawing

In Structural Figure Drawing, we will focus on the simple geometric solids that are an important supplement of an artist’s thinking in order to draw and paint with accuracy and efficiency. In this class students will study the basic geometric structures and their application to the human body. The first three lessons will consist of drawing from geometric solids such as the cube, cone, sphere and cylinder. Careful attention will be given to their unique architecture and how to effectively model each form in charcoal. Then working from a live model these geometric solids will be applied to the forms of the body with special consideration given to the portrait. Through these investigations students will become sensitized to how the most basic geometric forms can help simplify and clarify the complexities of the human body.
