DRAWING THE HUMAN FIGURE FOR BEGINNERS-SPRING 2020
Drawing and painting the human figure has been one of humanity’s oldest ways to communicate. Since cave paintings where the hunter is portrayed with basic structural lines that suggest movement and proportion to tell others about their hunt, to religious paintings that allowed the illiterate to understand a message conveyed in a book, to representations of kings and queens to communicate power and nobility, to the more humanistic paintings of the impressionists who intended to show a more natural world and exalt the common, to the abstract paintings of modern artists to express their in conformity with rules and structure, the portrayal of the human figure has accompanied the evolution of humanity at every level.
In this class I attempt to provide the students with the fundamentals of live drawing to help them overcome the fear and challenge of transforming a 3D image, the model, into a 2D representation, the canvas, and to do it correct proportioned and with a pleasant composition.
Students will learn to use materials such as graphite pencils, red conte pencils, ink, compressed and vine charcoal to render live models. The class starts with the fundamental steps to draw the figure, including the basic knowledge of materials, drawing medium, papers and surfaces, measuring tools and other skills needed to translate a three dimensional object into a two dimensional image. Elements of design and composition are covered in different sessions as well as basic proportions of the human figure. There is always a live model present in the class and students are encouraged to work exclusively from life. Demos are provided often at the start of a new concept or idea for clarification.
This class builds up from the beginning, so drop-ins are not welcomed, and attendance is required to develop a structured base and to incorporate new concepts.
$450 if paid in full by the first class or $50 if paid each class. Model fees ($50) are not included in this price but will be divided between participants.
Saturday 3:00 -5:30 pm
Starting date, Saturday March 7th
