Get an overview of figure drawing techniques, an intro to some of the masters, and lots of practice sketching a live model. Class will cover basic instruction and techniques, followed by plenty of practice with a live model. Either clothed or nude subjects (depending on who will work for free) with timed poses ranging from 1-30 minute poses. Possibly would use participants as models (clothed, of course). ///// SUPPLIES You'll Need to Bring: A large sketch pad, at least 18x24 inches (larger is better). Vine charcoal, graphite pencils, pens, markers, pastels, crayons, oil pastels, colored pencils, paints (and brushes, if you promise not to make a mess). Easel if you want, but otherwise we will be seated around the room. Some might like a large clip board to work on, but make sure that you at least have a sturdy sketch pad or other surface to draw on. ///// Location Accesibility: This location is accessible by walker but is not equipped with a ramp for wheelchairs.
Bring one of the following:
A book that you’ve read and liked (or that has really great illustrations in it)
A unique/weird coffee mug, like a Goodwill or garage sale gem
Bag of coffee
Something you made (food or craft)
