Classical Anatomical-Based Figure Drawing

Level: Beginner to Advanced

The emphasis of this class is on learning the anatomy, proportions and structure of the human figure based on the classical 7 1/2 head proportion system.  As we learn anatomical landmarks, proportions and old master "shorthand marks," we will also explore various media and techniques such as graphite pencil, charcoal, sanguine, and chalk pastel. 

Each session begins with a short talk on anatomy as well as a demonstration of techniques and materials.  Students draw from the live model with quick gesture drawings to warm-up, then we move to longer poses for the duration of the class.  Instructor demonstrations are also done at each class as well as individual instruction, and group critiques.
