Eric Michelson (the instructor) is a working artist in NYC with over 30 years experience teaching in various schools including the Art Students League, National Academy of Design and the 92nd Street Y. His paintings are in many private collections.
The class will focus on the practical skills needed to express the human form. We will concentrate 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. It is important to understand that these skills are the same whether your drawing is a quick study or a fully modeled one. The drawing classes will consist of short and long poses. A few charcoal pencils, a kneaded eraser, and an 18x24 newsprint pad are all that is required but people with experience may use whatever they like in the way of drawing materials and paper.
TUITION: $40 per class.
