Advance your understanding of the human figure by diving into a rich lineage of drawing practices accessible for contemporary students. Demonstrations alternate with discussions on techniques that will improve your drawing skills. Starting with concepts relating to movement and design, we progress to a rigorous exploration of proportion and then give full expression to the drawing using value and form. This workshop is designed for beginning through advanced students to bridge the gap between drawing from observation, historical life drawing practices and the skills needed to complete a successful drawing. Working from a live model, you will systematically draw the figure with gesture, balance, and proportion aiding the illusion of form. Students will leave this class with a better understanding of the figure’s key landmarks, form sense, construction, and gain greater ability to render the human form.
