Figure Drawing I

Drawing is the foundation of many art disciplines, and honing this skill allows greater flexibility in your artistic practice. Working from live, non-nude models, students learn how to realistically render the human form from observation. The essential elements of life drawing, including anatomy, proportion, volume, composition, gesture, and the accurate and expressive use of line and tone are addressed to provide a focus for increasing skill. In addition, students explore experimental approaches such as blind contour drawing and drawing from memory. This course is recommended for both beginners and those wanting to improve and develop their current skills and ideas.
