What you'll learn in this drawing class:

Full Course Title:  Drawing from Life: Constructing and Composing the Figure w/ Rick Piloco

Working from the live model, students will learn to draw the live model where they will aim for strong gesture and draftsmanship. 

Poses will be relatively short, to focus on capturing the movements and fundamental construction of the figure, and understanding the abstract rhythms that make the figure such an important and captivating subject. There will be constant demonstrations as well as critiques.

Materials you will need to bring to class:
 
  • Pencils or charcoal or red chalk 
  • pad of paper (newsprint or all-purpose) 14" x 17" or 16"x 20" or 18"x 24"

Question from Daniel M.
Is the model being drawn always male, or female, or does it fluctuate? The only reason I ask is that the last two classes I took there was a male model and I'm interested in drawing the female form too.
Answer from Ellen Z. Verified Student
This was a female model but that’s not to say they use the same model every class. You’d have to ask. I’ve taken classes at the 92nd St Y had women. But it varies during the week. This instructor, btw, was very good I thought.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff

Reviewed by Dave S. on 11/30/2018
This wasn't really a class so much as open drawing time with a live model. Over the course of the three hours, we drew a series of 1-min, 2-min, 5-min, 10-min, and 20-min poses. Despite the course description, there weren't "constant demonstrations as well as critiques" -- I received two (very helpful) pieces of feedback from the instructor, but would've appreciated more help. I highly recommend that you have ample experience drawing live models for this workshop -- definitely not for beginners!
