What you'll learn in this figure drawing class:

This class will look at and analyze how to go from the real world of observation into abstraction using some simple exercises.

Starting with basic drawing and working into painting (acrylics preferred) we will also explore materials and their unique possibilities to add to the project.

Taking into account color and composition we will work to produce original works while maintaining a solid conceptual basis for the work.

Materials:

  • Drawing utensils ( charcoal, variety of pencils, paper)
  • Painting: a set of acrylics
  • A selection of brushes
  • Paper and/or canvas

As the course progresses gels and mediums will be added as needed.
