Discover the Best Figure Drawing Classes Online

Many people spend their entire lives admiring beautiful art depicting the human form without knowing how to create it. Past generations of artists had to travel to new countries to apprentice for titans of the field or enroll in cost-prohibitive art schools. However, many students are now pursuing this craft through online classes. Online classes are accessible to anyone with a strong internet connection, allowing students to learn international models and instructors. Keep reading to discover how you can learn figure drawing in the comfort of your home through online classes. 

Why You Should Learn Figure Drawing Online

The human form is one of many artists' favorite subjects. From the cave paintings of Altamira to the abstract artwork of Francis Bacon and Myles Murphy, artists have tried to capture the nuances and intricacies of the human form through their artwork. Many artists gravitate towards figure drawing as a form of meditation, with each detail requiring close observation and mindfulness to capture the unique curves and characteristics of human forms. More introverted artists also see figure drawing as an opportunity to form a quiet community through shared interests. Many artists join groups that regularly meet to sketch the same model or subject.

Beyond the mental and physical benefits of figure drawing, many professionals are also discovering that figure drawing can help them build skills relevant to any career. Figure drawing can help wildlife biologists hone their specimen drawing skills and doctors and nurses learn more about the intricacies of the human body. Many students also notice that figure drawing helps them cultivate their observation and organization capabilities as figure drawing requires an understanding and ordering of space. 

Virtual Figure Drawing Classes 

Online courses bring professional-grade figure-drawing instruction to the comfort of your home, office, or any other location of your choice! Like in-person classes, online figure drawing classes are taught by trained instructors with skill-building curriculums and set meeting times. These figure drawing classes will give you the art apprentice experience without the commute and in the location of your choice. Students benefit from the joys and comradery of group learning in online settings without having the distractions of side chatter and other noises that occur in person. 

Newer artists may be intimidated by having to set up their workstations alone. Unlike in-person classes where most of the materials are provided by the instructor, students that enroll in online courses have to purchase their materials and set up their stations alone. Nevertheless, artists of all experience levels frequently enjoy this opportunity. All online classes will come with recommended supply lists that you can use to prepare for class. Beyond these required tools, you have full agency over your space and create the studio that will best work for your needs and preferences. 

Are you ready to commit to an online class? Luckily, CourseHorse offers online figure drawing classes that will work for almost every schedule. Newer artists will love the flexibility and guidance of The Art Studio NY’s Fear-Free Beginner’s Drawing 101 and Beginners Art Journaling. Have you always wanted to learn how to draw gorgeous portraits of your friends and family? Check out 92nd Street Y’s Portrait Drawing: Black & White to Color Classes. Students looking for an opportunity to learn the skills necessary to draw realistic human musculature and features will love 92nd Street Y’s Figure and Portrait Drawing Combined Class. Looking to live your life with a bit more color? 92nd Street Y also offers a Drawing with Pastel course that can help you make ordinary objects and figures POP! Previous participants rave that these four to six-week classes are a great opportunity to receive feedback from instructors and discover their unique identities as artists.

Private Online Group Figure Drawing Classes

The only thing better than enrolling in a figure drawing class is to enroll in a figure drawing class with your people. Whether you are part of a business looking for a new team-building event or an organization to train a group in a new skill, CourseHorse will have a figure drawing class for private groups online that will engage all experience levels.

Planning a class on your own can be a huge challenge, especially if it is happening online. From finding an instructor to making sure everyone has the necessary tools to complete the assignment, most organizers quickly question their initial motivation to undertake such a task in the first place. Nevertheless, Coursehorse takes care of the details so you and your team can just enjoy the experience. Coursehorse will even send participants any materials that students will not readily have access to in their house, minimizing the organizer’s planning time and responsibilities. 

Designed to minimize the hassle of organizing a large group, CourseHorse has flexibility built into its enrollment program. Organizations simply need to reserve a class using the check-out function on the website. From there, the business can change the group size as needed for no additional fees. Coursehorse classes can even be canceled with no additional fees if the organization gives at least a two-week notice. With no booking fees and the opportunity to host a class on your company’s preferred communication platform, there has never been a better time to enroll in a CourseHorse class! 

Online vs. In-Person Figure Drawing Classes

Many people assume that a skill like figure drawing may be too hard to learn because they are not “creative enough” or have struggled in art classes in high school or college. In reality, most people don’t naturally possess the talent necessary to learn figure drawing and instead just need to practice. Nevertheless, they just haven’t found the right learning format yet.

Students that benefit from the structure and co-learning supported through group learning will likely gravitate towards in-person classes taught at a local university or technical school. Instructors are readily available to answer questions and frequently set students up with the materials they need to successfully complete their course. These classes help students create and maintain a steady schedule that allows them to hit important milestones and progressively develop their craft. 

Despite the clear benefits of in-person classes, many students are reluctant to enroll. Some artists live in remote areas where traveling to a regular art class would require a long commute or be completely inaccessible. Others may feel as if the classroom environment is too distracting or even stifles their creativity. 

If the idea of attending in-person classes is preventing you from exploring a new hobby, online classes may be the ideal solution for you. Online classes are accessible anywhere with a strong internet signal, allowing new and established artists to create their studios in the location of their choice. Like in-person classes, online courses are created and taught by a trained artist that is invested in your success. Live online classes even allow students to ask their instructors questions and receive feedback in real-time. Regardless of which format you choose, researching your options can save you time and money on your figure drawing journey. 

Can I Learn Figure Drawing for Free Online?

New artists looking to dabble in different art forms before committing frequently turn to free online tutorials. A simple YouTube search generates hundreds of self-contained lessons that can teach you the fundamentals of figure drawing for free. Many creators have video tutorials about drawing musculature, forming basic poses, and tips that can help artists refine their craft. Nevertheless, many students struggle to connect the disparate information covered in these videos. Many introductory tutorials cover similar information or may confuse students with contradictory advice. Students that seek more comprehensive training programs progress more consistently over a shorter period.
