"Explore your talents and enjoy a class focused on figure drawing from one of our carefully selected, professional live models."
In this course we will be using a spot lit model, partially clothed in tights or swimsuit. As we go forward and you learn to understand and draw the human figure, they will be draped with soft clothing or fabric. Understanding the structure of anatomy and learning the proportions, perspective and correct relationships, will all be part of accomplishing a correct rendering of the figure. Drapery will add another level to your drawing. Establishing how it lays on and contours to the body, portraying the folds, creases and patterns or print of the fabric is a fun challenge. Light and shadow will play an important part in defining the form. We will begin with 5 to 10-minute poses to establish the proportions, gesture and movement of the figure. As class progresses, the length of time for poses will be extended to develop definition, edges and proper shading to establish the complete form. Some drawing experience is helpful but I encourage new artists, especially, to experience an actual model set up. Instructor assistance will be provided.
