Practice figure drawing and learn muscle/skeleton anatomy to draw humans more realistically; this class is for students already fairly comfortable drawing, who are looking to improve their technique! #Creative

Class experience

  • Students will practice drawing skills including gesture sketching, figure proportions, musculature, shading, and drapery/clothing. We'll work on developing more confidence to work independently and assess their own drawing and accuracy.
I've taught realistic drawing for over 15 years, mostly working as a full-time high school drawing and sculpture teacher, and figure drawing has always been my favorite subject.  It's my goal to help my students develop the skills and confidence they need to draw anything they want!  
All you'll need for this class is a pencil, eraser, and drawing paper.  
If you prefer to work in a sketchbook or on a drawing tablet, feel free to do so!  

*Additional media such as charcoal, ink, drawing pencils (2B, HB, etc), or conte crayon are optional but also acceptable.  
Students are expected to exhibit maturity toward the photo models and one another during class.  We will use respectful language toward all body types, and other characteristics of appearance and dress.  Some models wearing less clothing (such as close-fitting tights, leotards, and swimsuits) will be shown, but all subjects will be chosen with care.
