Figure Drawing Workshop with Zoe Papas
Saturday, April 9th 2022
10 am – 4 pm
Figure drawing is timeless and important because it seeks to portray the complex beauty of the human person. In this course, students will be taught how to draw the nude human figure from a live model using charcoal and chalk on paper. The instructor will provide all the necessary materials for the workshop. Prior drawing experience and knowledge of basic drawing concepts is highly recommended, as the figure is one of the most difficult subjects to draw. Lessons will use a structural approach geared towards helping students draw what they see. Students will be taught techniques to establish accurate proportions, simplify the subject, and understand value relationships. The workshop will consist of demonstrations, gestures, and several long pose drawings. There will also be individualized help when necessary.
