What's Included

Adults only: All Levels Approach the human figure as a landscape, and explore drawing with fluidity using a variety of media. This class will focus on how to break down the human figure into simplified forms, capture the weight and motion of a gesture, and use light and shadow to make drawings come to life. Students will work from a live nude model during each of the six weeks. A supply list may be downloaded from our website or at registration, once confirmed. Student/Instructor ratio: 8 to 1
