    January 6, 2020 - March 27, 2020

You must have some experience in hand tool woodworking, finer machine work and basic design before taking this class.

  7. Hands & Feet with Rick Myers

    January 18, 2020, 10:00 AM - January 19, 2020, 3:00 PM

    You will tackle one of the anatomical features that send artists running. Hands and feet are avoided, painted loosely, shoved in pockets, or just ignored in drawing because artists are afraid of rendering them incorrectly. You will learn anatomy and starting with bone and moving out through muscle and fat for both the hands and feet. Then you will learn multiple tricks to render hands and feet so they don’t come out looking funny. With that knowledge you will do some drills drawing many hands and feet quickly. When a bunch of practice is done we will do our best creating, a finished drawing.
