The class offers an introduction to the principles and techniques of drawing the human form. We will focus predominantly on the figure, but will also dedicate time to portraiture and self-portraiture. In order to help beginner to intermediate students hone their skills and gain a better grasp of the principles of life drawing, I will offer demonstrations at the beginning of class and provide students with anatomical diagrams and other helpful handouts. Initial sessions will be devoted to life drawing using charcoal and graphite, and the class will eventually progress to portraiture and figurative painting using oil or acrylic paints.
