What you'll learn in this figure drawing class:

Learn to construct solid and anatomically correct figure and portrait drawings. Through lectures, demonstrations, and individual instruction, this course will cover the anatomical, structural, and surface forms of the head and figure. With a focus on the gesture as our starting point, we will identify the line of the body and develop the constitution of the figure through sequentially longer poses. 

There will be an emphasis on proportion, perspective, line quality, and light on form. We will also cover skeletal and muscular anatomy for the artist and portraiture. 

The introduction of new media will allow us to experiment with different ways to represent the figure in our drawings, utilizing chalk pastels, charcoal, ink, cut paper, and conte.

Drawing is the foundation of many forms of visual expression, and by concentrating on the foundational principles of drawing the figure, students will expand their knowledge through a studied observation of the human figure. Open to all levels.

Constructing the Figure
Reviewed by Ann H. on 5/23/2022
I enjoyed this figure drawing class at the NY School of the Arts. The school is well organized and offers a variety of art making classes. The instructor was very knowledgeable and engaging. We worked from live models (always a good thing) and with a variety of media. Our instructor provided us with guidance on portraiture and other aspects of figure drawing. I learned a lot in this class.
