Step Into Figure Drawing (one-day immersive workshop)

Would you like to tackle a figure drawing, but maybe it’s your first time, or you haven’t drawn in a while? This introductory class will begin with some basic foundations of figure drawing including determining figure structure and looking for proportions. We will then work together to build on your skills, step-by-step, to enable you to draw the human form with confidence.
