SEPTEMBER--Rhythmic Gesture & Structural Block-In

This first month will focus on approaches for developing a structurally sound & accurate block-in that will give them a solid foundation upon which to develop a more fully rendered drawing.  Classes will begin with shorter quick studies to master the large forms and dynamic rythms of the figure in any given pose.  The second half of class will be spent on building a structural "straight-line block-in".

Dates: 9/16, 9/23, 9/30


OCTOBER--Drawing The Head & Capturing A Likeness

This 3-week class will focus on the structure of the head.  Students will learn to break down the complexity of the various features and planes of the head, as well as learn an step-bystep approach for capturing likeness. 

Dates: 10/7, 10/14, 10/21


NOVEMBER--Rendering The Figure

This month will focus on techniques for rendering the figure.  Various media will be discussed and demonstrated with an emphasis on shading and form-rendering methods such as cross-hatching.  There will be a long 3-week pose, providing students the opportunity to create a more fully realized drawing from block-in to finished rendering.

Dates: 11/4, 11/11, 11/18
