Anatomical Drawing of the Nude Form is a weekly, three hour, structured course in life drawing and anatomy. Students will learn the human figure’s infrastructure using a life size skeleton and a live model. Several classical methods will be covered to build the student’s confidence in drawing the human figure anatomically correct and in proportion.

Proportion exercises and varied techniques will help students capture the subtle nuances necessary to create volume and dimension within the human form. Students will learn how to use diverse drawing materials such as charcoals, conte pencils, and pastel tonal sticks. Watercolor dyes and inks will introduce the use of the brush to transition the student into painting.

Students will experience the enjoyable and fulfilling process of creating beautiful and unique works of art, and expect to complete several drawings each week. All artistic and ability levels are welcomed. Individual artists will be instructed at their stage of experience.

Students will supply their own materials:
                Drawing supplies 18”x24” newsprint pad
                18”x24” Strathmore 400 Series white paper pad, soft vine
                General Pencil Multi Pastel Compressed Chalk Sticks
                       4/Pkg-Grey Tones or skin tone
                Conte or pastel pencils or pastel sticks in loud colors
                Kneaded Eraser
                Any other drawing materials you feel comfortable working in
                       during the length of the course.

Note: A cash-only model fee for all four class sessions will
be collected on the first day of the first class.

There will be a new model each week.
