Figure Drawing (Tuesday evening)

This class will introduce you to basic theories, principals, and techniques to successfully draw the figure. We will concentrate on improving your eye and knowledge through handouts, note taking, demonstrations, and lots of drawing from a live model. There will be one-on-one critiques, group discussions and dialogue to help improve your drawing skills. Topics include gesture drawings, long drawing, drawing from multiple viewpoints, composing multiple figures on the page, discussing methods and materials, etc. The class skills will prepare you for many of the other classes at Fleisher such as painting, printmaking, sculpture, and collage.
