TUESDAYS, MARCH 1-22, 2022
Instructor: Keith Wicks
Location: Room 210
Learning to draw the human figure from a live model is an important skill that takes discipline and effort. This four-session class is designed to teach you to see shapes and simple proportions and tie them together to add life, energy and depth to your figure sketches. We will establish increased recognition of body landmarks with an easy-to-follow formula. The sketch sessions will build confidence exponentially until you can document the figure in less time and concentrate more on fluid expression and the marks you place on the paper. We will cover gesture drawing, action poses, rhythmic drawing, values and shading.
Please see the Supply List to learn what to bring to class.
