Figure Drawing and Painting Workshop

The focus of this workshop is to learn to draw and paint the human form. The model will begin with short gestural poses and work up to one longer pose that lasts the remainder of the session. We will go over tips and tricks to accurately portray the human figure including a focus on the face and hands. We will also go over color usage and shading. You may draw during the workshop using pastels, charcoal or graphite in this session. If you prefer to paint, you may work in wither acrylic or watercolor. You must bring all of your own supplies and materials. During this workshop we will work from a live nude model.
