Figure Drawing (Wednesday Morning)

Learn the basic theories, principals, and techniques to successfully draw the figure. With a focus on improving observational skills, the class will also build essential knowledge of drawing fundamentals through handouts, demonstrations, and lots of drawing from a live model. Benefit from plenty of individual instructor feedback, group discussions, and dialogue about your work in progress to help improve your drawing skills.
