This class is a figure drawing class designed for people of all levels. From novice to pro, the need for continued practice is essential in making a more personal figurative drawing. Through thought-out and easily understood exercises, students will more easily understand construction and form with the focus on the head, hands and feet using references.
Students are encouraged to submit homework for critique. Learning from your peers to part of a students growth.
After this class, students will have the greater facility to create more easily from the imagination and will have greater confidence to edit when working from life. Therefore, the student can interpret more poetically what he/she sees and make the drawing or painting more personal as a result.
