Figure Drawing and Painting – PM
Day : Wednesday
Time : 6:30-9:30 pm
Instructor : Rob Zeller
Class Starts : May 8th
A class designed for artists of all levels of experience
In Foundations of Figure Drawing and Painting students first study how the figure is made of up of simple geometric shapes and planes. Then, working from a live model, Instructor Rob Zeller teaches a system of drawing and painting that includes rhythm, proportion, structure, anatomy, form and color in a manner that is easy to grasp for artists at any level.
Each week will feature short poses to work on a given concept, and one longer pose that will last for the entire session. Students can expect to get one finished drawing per session, and many short sketches and anatomical notes.
