Drawing & Painting: The Figure

Beginning, returning, and advanced students are welcome to explore drawing and painting in this course where we’ll capture the spirit and vitality of the human form. Activities will include quick gesture poses and contour drawings. As we become familiar with the nuances of the figure’s line and form, we will work toward longer poses. To create lively and expressive drawings and paintings, we will use materials including graphite, charcoal, and acrylic paint.

We will not approach the human form with mathematical lessons on proportion. Instead, we’ll emphasize ways of seeing and guide you through exercises designed to help you capture the essence of the remarkable human form.

 

Additional Information
Class will not meet on October 31, November 7, and November 21. We will draw and paint from a clothed or nude figure model during this seven-session class. Model fees are included in the cost of this class.

Supplies are not included in the cost of this class. One week prior to the class’ start date, a supply list will be emailed to all students.
