Learn to draw the human form from direct observation

Life drawing is said to be both the foundation of and the highest expression of artistic talent. It's a unique challenge combining the complexities of human anatomy, and the experience of four dimensions: Height, width, depth and time. (Photos only contain the first two!)

In this class you'll gain an understanding of the rhythms and patterns of the nude human body, with a flexibility to accommodate subtle shifts that happen during the pose. You'll also learn how to show form and depth through shading, as well as techniques for accurate proportion.

The workshop is designed to give you the basics before incrementally adding more advanced concepts.

You'll move from shorter poses to give you practice with new ideas, to longer poses that allow you the opportunity to create more finished drawings.
