Product Description

Description

This structured, five—session long course (approximately a 10 hour pose, including each session’s initial set of troubleshooting, technical themes) will offer students a unique opportunity to engage, interpret and create a compelling drawing of the human figure from life. Throughout the development of the long pose drawing, participants will be guided—by means of descriptions and demonstrations—on the body’s system of landmarks, light and tonal effects on it’s surface, figure construction and how perspective alters the appearance of structure, as well as on comprehending/interpreting form through dynamic mark making and insightful edge resolutions. Individual criticism will support the lecture demonstrations.
