About this course:
The human figure is an endlessly expressive and fascinating vehicle. In this four-session workshop, students workings from live models, and the focus is on gestural movement. Projects investigate the figure depicted, the marks themselves and the composition as a whole. While instruction also covers anatomy and descriptive drawing, the emphasis is on observational skills, and intuitive, fast execution. Fast timed poses are mixed with longer poses to give students multiple opportunities to explore the subject.
