Next session: July 11th to August 1st, 2024

In this 4-session course, students will be introduced to figure/ground relationships, gesture, composition, value scales, and the fundamentals of perspective.

Students will learn a tactile approach to drawing that provides students with the tools to build strong perceptual and analytical skills.

Each session will be composed of "quick" poses meant to enforce a relational understanding of the human figure, followed by longer poses or anatomical study.

This intensive workshop is designed to provide students with a comprehensive grasp of the structure, resemblance, and essence of the sitter. We focus on the anatomical proportions, volume, and scale of the subject. Students will use chiaroscuro, sfumato, and other light modeling techniques.

Students will work from the live model.
