What you'll learn in this figure 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"

Drawing from Life: Constructing & Composing (Fri)
Reviewed by Patricia C. on 4/12/2019
Such a relaxing atmosphere, I took 3 of my high school students to draw and they learned so much in 3 hours! The environment, the professionalism, and the helpful guided critiques from the instructor while drawing were great and so useful. We did gesture studies (2 min) up to a long pose (15 min), slowly increasing the time of each pose. I would like to go back and do a long-pose session to give my students an opportunity to create a finished piece for their portfolio.
