Thursday nights

This weekly figure drawing class will explore various methods of observation to accurately represent the human figure. Working on one drawing over multiple sessions, students will start by learning how to translate the proportions and gesture of the model onto paper. On this foundation the class will then study key anatomical structures, as well as the creation of form through light and shadow.

Each class will begin with a short discussion on various topics such as anatomy, movement, perspective and light paying particular attention to how these ideas are used in the drawing process. After this, students will work on their own drawings guided by one-on-one critiques.

This class is intended for all levels, and instruction is tailored to the individual student.
