Figure Drawing (Wednesday Night)

This online 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 of the figure from photographs. There will be 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.
