Working from a live nude model, this figure drawing workshop will cover a range of approaches and techniques for beginners and experienced members of the community alike. Figure drawing is arguably one of the most complex forms of observational drawing. Meet this challenge by exploring concepts of gesture, contour line, form, value, and positive & negative space. The study of body proportions, anatomy, movement, foreshortening and varied mark-making are emphasized using digital slide references from art history and drawing demonstrations from the instructor.
$300 members/$337 non-members, plus $25 lab fee to cover materials provided by WSW. Registration is online only. Students register on a first come, first serve basis and your spot in the class is only guaranteed once WSW has received your payment in full below.
