This class will introduce the student to the fundamentals of drawing from the figure. Drawing is a visual language that teaches how to see: the student will develop an understanding of the visual language used to describe form. In this case the human form.


By learning the fundamentals of drawing, a substantial base is created for further learning: painting, sculpture, printmaking and design to name but a few disciplines. The following elements will be covered in this one week course: gesture, form, line, volume, light, proportion/scale, anatomy, and composition. Every class will progress from short to long poses.


Please register by Friday, August 16th by contacting
