Each week of "Draw Together" is a miniature drawing workshop. Students will follow along with me as I demonstrate how to draw a new person or pose each week, using reference photos to guide our sketches. We will build skills such as drawing from observation, shading, adding clothing, and including a background. My goal is not only to teach students how to draw a particular person or pose, but to help them practice the skills they need to draw anything they want! Lessons are interactive...
Students will practice drawing from observation, shading, adding clothing, and creating backgrounds with contrast and depth. Some weeks may include optional additional media practice such as ink, watercolor, or colored pencil.
Figure drawing is my favorite art discipline! I have years of experience creating my own drawings and sculptures, using the human form as inspiration, and I always brought my enjoyment and expertise to my students when we created figurative artworks. I have taught figure drawing to elementary, junior high, and high school age students for over a decade, and look forward to meeting more young artists who want to learn this skill!
Students who work more slowly may wish to use time after class to finish their sketches.

We will be using photographs of people as references. Photographs will depict a diverse range of body types, and respect for all models will be expected. There will be no nudity, however some figures may be clothed in leotards, gym shorts, or similar. Please feel free to address concerns with me beforehand, and I will take your student's needs into consideration.
