In Studio with Oolite: Human Figure Drawing

March 4 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

This 4-week Human Figure Drawing course will provide students with specific drawing media experiences to build basic perceptual skills in terms of drawing from the human figure. Students will alternate gesture drawings with long methodical studies.

There will be demos and exercises to practice and review the basic elements of art: line, value, shape/volume, texture, and color to lead to their deliberate manipulation for different types of spatial illusion, compositions, and expressive meaning drawing spontaneously, energetically, and accurately from life.

The human body is marvelously complex and expressive. Excellent figure drawings may be either very involved or very simple and always convey a sense that the represented form is alive. A nude model will be present.

The instructor will work with each student, giving constructive criticism and doing individual demonstrations. Class will collectively discuss and critique at the end of each session.

This course is directed toward giving the students a structured approach to drawing the human figure, which will serve as a foundation for their personal interpretive approach.

Class meets on Saturdays for four consecutive weeks. Materials are not included you’ll receive the materials list upon registration.
