Through the use of a live model we will study the human form to create greater likeness, more accurate proportion, depth and volume through tonal values, as well as liveliness in our drawings. Instruction is both group-oriented and tailored to students’ personal interests and skill levels, with one-to-one attention for each student. Demos will be included. The class environment will be encouraging, positive, and energetic. Students will leave with skills to continue figure drawing on their own.
