Putting Life and Energy into Figure Drawing

Putting Life and Energy into Figure Drawing

This class will focus on figure drawing with a delicate and deliberate approach. Beginning with shorter poses (2,3,5 and 10 minutes) the attention will be on getting the rhythm and gesture of the pose first. As the class progresses, the poses will get longer as more attention is paid to building on the drawing and adding further details. Some of the topics discussed will be anatomy, structure, rhythm, mass, line, form and, most importantly, capturing personality in your drawings. Some aspects of getting a likeness and portrait elements into your work will also be discussed. This class is designed to strengthen general drawing skills in any aspect of the visual arts including painting Landscapes, Still Life, Portraits, Illustration, Animation, Fashion Design, and Graphic Design.
