nude_drawingFigure Art Workshop

10 weeks beginning MONDAY Night, February 6, 2017, 6-8:30pm $15

Uninstructed nude figure drawing & painting workshop. Bring your own drawing supplies, or if you would rather paint, bring an easel and your painting gear. We will alternate short and long poses each week. Short-pose nights: we will start with gesture warm-up poses for the first 25 minutes, then 20-minute long poses for remainder of night. The following week we will do a single long-pose all night. Doors will be open by 5:30 and we will begin at precisely 6:00pm so get there beforehand to set-up and do a meet-n-greet. We have a number of easels and drawing boards, but feel free to bring your own gear.

10 weeks beginning THURSDAY, February 2, 2017. 6 to 8:30pm (now in session)
$450 for 10-week class (includes textbook, sketchbook, pencils, kneaded eraser, pencil holder)

Developing the art of observation will be the principal aspect of this drawing class. The way we perceive the world, shapes our worldview and our approach to life. The ability to “see” is one of the most important aspects of creating a drawing. We will be learning to gaze at a subject, discovering relationships between shapes, looking for subtle shifts in light and shadow, composition, perspective and many other tools for creating an accurate rendering of any subject.

Students will be working on classroom projects, and will also be required to follow-up each week in their sketch journal. Instructor demonstrations are an important part of any session and take place often and when necessary. Attention will be given to different skill levels within the class.
