Discover the Best Figure Drawing Classes in Los Angeles

There is always something new to try in Los Angeles. From the restaurants to the shows, you could spend a lifetime seeking out new experiences. But when did you last take a moment to observe your surroundings mindfully or notice the finer details of another person’s features? Artists of all experience levels and styles are discovering the benefits of figure drawing or the practice of creating intricate and intimate portraits of the human form. These classes allow students to reconnect with their creative side while building observation skills. Join a larger community of creative minds exploring the intricacies of the human experience with figure drawing. 

Why You Should Learn Figure Drawing in Los Angeles

Have you noticed your mind drifting lately? With the overwhelming presence of social media and other distractions, people worldwide are struggling to commit their attention to anything long-term these days. If you are looking for a way to break the cycle of mindless scrolling and reconnect with the world around you, figure drawing can help you reconnect with your former passions while building a new skill. 

Figure drawing is a great way to ground mindfulness practice into a creative hobby. Many people with high-stress jobs use figure drawing and other creative endeavors to decompress after work and use their off time meaningfully. Others see figure drawing as an opportunity to build their personal network by meeting new people with similar interests and lifestyles. Artists with every experience level are rediscovering their imaginative side through figure drawing. 

In-Person Figure Drawing Classes in Los Angeles

Many artists view community and shared learning opportunities at the heart of their practice. Even novice artists can perfect their craft by learning drawing techniques and practices from a trained instructor. These teachers can help students master the hand movements and form necessary to create figure drawings. Students also enjoy learning from their peers and observing their approach to figure drawing and other artwork types. Having a built-in community of artists can also help students maintain a steady progression in mastering their craft and keeping active practice part of their schedule. 

Students looking for a community and environmentally-minded program should check out a course with the Valley Art Workshop. Located in the vibrant Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, the Valley Art Workshop hosts programs for artists of all ages and experience levels. The artists that instruct these courses cover a range of mediums including charcoal, ink, watercolor, oil, and digital programs like Procreate. The Valley Art Workshop also offers thematic classes, such as multi-figure composition, hands and feet, and graphic storytelling. Students with a background in figure drawing can even learn how to transform those skills into 3D figures through the upcoming Fantasy Sculpture class. The Valley Art Workshop also hosts several uninstructed life drawing workshops, allowing artists time to practice their craft with nude, costume, and character models. 

Virtual Figure Drawing Classes 

Despite the many benefits of engaging with your creative side through a figure drawing class, you may be skeptical of braving the dense Los Angeles traffic to commute to and from your class. Luckily, CourseHorse also offers several online figure drawing classes that can help you engage with your creative side from the comfort of your home or office. Unlike in-person classes that require professionals to rush from their office to campus, participants can take online classes anywhere with a wifi connection. Students frequently have more autonomy over their learning experience when enrolled in a virtual class. Rather than being forced to navigate the distractions and cliques that inevitably form in a classroom environment, students can instead focus on refining their techniques and developing their unique artistic identities. 

Beyond these logistical benefits of online learning, virtual classes can also offer a variety of courses without being constrained by the limits of location and studio space. Are you feeling a bit anxious about building your artistic skills from scratch? Check out The Art Studio NY’s Fear-Free Beginner’s Drawing 101 or Fear-Free Beginner’s Comics and Cartoon Drawing. Both classes focus on building students’ confidence and technical skills in a non-judgmental and fun environment. Students can even keep in touch through The Art Studio NY’s private community on Facebook. After learning the basics, progress your skills from rudimentary to advance portraiture techniques through 92nd Street Y’s Portrait Drawing: Black and White to Color or Figure and Portrait Combined courses. You can even learn to add brilliant colors to your drawings through basic and intermediate Watercolor Painting and Drawing with Pastels classes. Discover your artistic passion with online classes!
