Drawing the Human Form
A Fine Art Course
Gina Torello

Gina Torello will be teaching in-person at the Guild of Creative Art this upcoming fall 2021.

Gina earned her M.F.A. from the Dominican University in Florence Italy. She taught at Boardman Studio, an undergraduate Academy in Florence, Italy, and exhibited her work at Villa Schifanoia and Peroni’s Bottega. She lived and worked in Europe for five years during and after her graduate studies.

Gina is an Adjunct Professor at Monmouth University going on 18 years and she teaches Drawing 1 and Drawing 2 along with Art Appreciation. She also taught  Drawing, 2D and 3D Design, Art Appreciation, Life Drawing and Color Theory at Brookdale Community College. Presently, she is an instructor at BCC’s Life Long Learning program teaching Art History. She also teaches art classes through the Monmouth County Park System at Thompson Park.

Drawing the Human Form is a beginner course teaching the fundamental study of the human figure and its proportions. As you develop an understanding of proportion you will learn to render the form realistically using a structured approach with simple tools, making the transition into painting so pleasurable. You will learn the importance of the basic infrastructure of the skeleton and its relevance in drawing a 3D figure on a 2D surface. Each lesson will help you gain confidence and will allow you to work at your own level in your medium of choice.
