Learning to render the human figure from life in a gestural, vital way is an important skill to master for any aspiring artist. In this class, short, timed sketching sessions will allow participants to quickly turn the figure in deep space and represent the nude form in more dramatic and challenging poses, while longer drawings will encourage the expression of volume and weight in the subject. These exercises are designed to establish easy-to-follow anatomical formulas and increased recognition of important body landmarks. The sketch sessions will build confidence exponentially until students find that they can document the nude figure in dramatically less time than before, enabling them to concentrate more on the fluid expression of their marks on paper instead of the simple reportage of their subject.
