Life drawing has many different temperaments and this class will travel down a divergent path exploring many of these tool sets. From construction to massing, from line to pick out, we will explore different starts, different ways of measuring and different approaches to life drawing. You will learn some shortcuts that will speed up defining these complex forms without getting hung up on the details.
