  1. Beginning Figure Drawing with Kelly Drake

    September 11, 2018, 6:00 PM - October 30, 2018, 8:30 PM

    In Beginning Figure Drawing, you’ll learn to draw the human figure in a casual, non-judgmental environment. First, by doing quick “gesture” drawings, you’ll learn to capture the essence of a pose quickly and accurately. Then, during longer poses, learn how to portray the correct human proportions through observation, drawing accuracy, measuring and some anatomy basics. Move on to creating shading and light, comparing values and adding drama. Once you have the hang of it, figure drawing can be fun, rewarding, and addictive. You’ll never find out unless you give it a try.
