Any student will enjoy this review of drawing the human figure with a variety of materials. The first three classes will focus on drawing from photo and master artist drawing copies, casts of the body, as well as the skeleton. A variety of handouts will be provided. Emphasis will be to use the elements of art, and study of anatomy to build a solid foundation before drawing from the model. Beginning in week four, we will discuss drawing drapery with the figure, and move to the undraped male and female model for classes five and six. Each week there will be time to review outside work, as well as to critique in class exercises. Adults only, age 18 or over
