This series of one-day workshops will expose the new student to consistent analysis and process in drawing the human figure. We learn exactly how life is put into a drawing (gesture), and how to define form, volume through basic shape. The student will leave the workshops with knowledge that will allow independent figure work, using specific techniques, able to draw the figure from many perspectives.
