Drawing & Painting: The Figure
Are you interested in rendering the human form, but worry it’s too challenging? This course is intended to put those feelings at ease. Beginning, returning, and advanced students are welcome to explore drawing and painting in this course focused on capturing the spirit and vitality of the figure. 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.
Students will draw and paint from a clothed or nude figure model during this class. 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.
