Examine bodies by drawing them. Working with nude and clothed models, we will explore the figure through a broad range of poses, materials and environments.
We'll focus on their proportions, movements, posture and aura. How do you record someone moving across the room? How do you record someone in deep concentration, or just barely breathing?
This course offers individual and group instruction and is ideal for students familiar with the model as well as beginners who are just approaching figure drawing for the first time.
