Figure Drawing Basics


Drawing the human figure is an enjoyable and powerful exploration that requires both technique and an understanding of human anatomy. You will be introduced to various approaches to drawing, including: line, value, mass and proportions study, gestures, and short and long pose drawings. Some lessons will involve drawing from a live model, but we’ll start working from mannequins, photos and book resources as we develop our understanding of the idea of figurative art, both historical and contemporary. We’ll use simple materials, mostly pencils and charcoal; supply list will be sent upon registration.
