Figure Drawing is an open studio class where people of all artistic levels are invited to explore the human form through drawing and painting. Figure drawing is a great opportunity to keep your artistic skills sharp whether you are a seasoned artist or a beginner: learn the basics of drawing from the nude form! Students are free to draw however they like. The model will strike and hold various poses for varied lengths of time: you will have the opportunity to work on quick sketching skills as well as longer studies.
Students will practice their drawing, sketching and charcoal techniques during class time. Drawing from a life model, students can develop a deeper awareness of volume and contour, and come to express that on paper. Gentle guidance is given by the instructor who is available to help improve techniques and skills during the session.
Please bring your own drawing materials including drawing and painting supplies of your choice. If you wish, bring a drawing surface. For beginners charcoal and large paper pad are recommended. Artisan’s Asylum will provide the model and the space.
No experience necessary — all-levels. This class open to anyone interested in practicing their drawing skills.
