Class Experience

We will practice drawing proportionate human faces, and figures in still and action poses, adding clothing, shading, and backgrounds. 
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!

All you'll need for this class is: -- Drawing paper -- Pencil -- A good eraser That's it! Feel free to sketch in a sketchbook, use fancy drawing pencil sets, and your favorite dinosaur-shaped eraser...or whatever you feel most comfortable using :)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
3 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
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.
