Instructor: Chris Page / Oct 11-15 / Monday, Wednesday-Friday / 6:00PM-10:00PM
Class Size: 6-12
Working from a live model, the student will learn the basics of interpreting the human figure, beginning with gesture, advancing to line; the block in, shape, rhythms, and anatomy. We will work with various short poses and progress to longer, multi session poses. Some of the concepts to be taught are advanced, and previous drawing experience is highly recommended. We will be working primarily in graphite and charcoal, but any drawing media is acceptable. A full supply list will be distributed before the workshop begins.
The instructor will give individual critiques at the easel, demonstrations, and visual aides to further illustrate the concepts. Throughout the class, informal discussions will be encouraged, with the goal of providing a safe, inspirational environment, in which the student will feel challenged. It is the goal of the instructor and the class that the student develop a greater facility, ease and understanding of not only the human portrait, but also the tools, techniques and procedures that will make the drawing experience a life-long challenge and pleasure.
Prerequisites: Beginning level drawing course required.
Supply List: A full supply list will be distributed before the workshop begins.
