Interested in drawing the human figure but feel intimidated to start? Are you drawing people from photographs and looking for new ways to breath life into your sketches? This workshop is ideal for beginner artists who may have never attended a figure drawing class before, or an artist who is looking for tips and tricks on getting more out of drawing people dynamically. Spend 2 hours exploring short pose techniques with a live (clothed) model! Our goal is to have fun exploring the figure and capturing movement, not creating perfect masterpieces. Come with your sketch pads, paper and any drawing material you prefer. Please bring your own easels and drawing benches if you have any!
Bring one of the following:

Old bus transfers
