Figure Drawing 101

7:00p.m. to 9:30p.m.

Learn the basics of figure drawing. Introduction to some of the masters of figure drawing. Basic instruction and techniques, followed by plenty of practice with a live model. Either clothed or nude subjects with timed poses ranging from 1-30 minute poses. Possibly would use participants as models (clothed, of course). ****Supplies students will need to bring to participate in this class: 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.

Bring one of the following:
A book that you’ve read and liked (or that has really great illustrations in it)
A dream catcher
A unique coffee mug, bowl, or plate
A wind chime
A work of art or craft made by you or someone you know
Bag of coffee
baked goods or any homemade food
Christmas lights
