Saturday Instructional Drawing Course
October 14, 2017 | 1:00 pm to December 09, 2017 | 4:00 pm
Join us on Saturday afternoons to hone your figure drawing skills with instructor and artist, Eric Michelson.
This course will focus on the practical skills needed to express the human form, concentrating on gesture, line, proportion, anatomy and a clear understanding of light and shadow. The aim is to help the student identify the essential elements of the figure and express it, and to understand that these skills are the same whether your drawing is a quick study or a fully modeled one. Sessions will consist of short and long poses with live model.
Materials needed: A few charcoal pencils, a kneaded eraser and an 18 x 24” newsprint pad are all that is required, but feel free to bring any additional materials you would like to use. We will supply easels.
