This ONLINE class is an introductory level class in life drawing. it's also a great follow-up to 008 ONLINE: Life Drawing Basics Gesture and Line.
Give your drawings more impact and dimensionality and focus on the volumes of the human form, and methods to show their sculptural volumes through line and through values (lights and darks).
Classes will involve instructor demos, support material and lots of drawing time. Working through a series of guided exercises, we will consider the masses and surface volumes of people (we will work with models online via Zoom). We will investigate cross-contour and contour hatching. Shading approaches using conte crayon and charcoal will also be explored.
Each class will be a springboard for recommended at-home exercises, to be shared at the start of the following class.
It is recommended that students have had some prior figure drawing/gesture drawing experience, or at least an introduction to drawing basics as this course is not recommended for absolute drawing beginners.
