Portrait and Human Figure Classes
Drawing and Painting for Teens & Adults
Join us for an exploration of portraiture and the human figure. Working from both master drawings and live models, we will delve into the complexities of representing the human form both accurately and creatively. The instructor will provide an explanation of basic human anatomy and general proportions. We will learn how to relate the body's nuances to simplified forms and employ measuring techniques. The course begins with drawing and moves toward painting once the fundamentals are understood. Additionally, we will keep up the practice of viewing and discussing great master works in figuration and portraiture from the renaissance through modernity for context, insight, and inspiration.
