Workshop Description 

In this class we will explore the interaction of structure, design, motion and expression in the human form by observing the inner anatomy of the body, its outer appearance and the relationship of clothing and fabrics to the body's form and movement. In addition to improving visual language skills, drawing the human figure from observation helps to nurture states of concentration and focus, giving us a “time out” from a more distracted daily life. Working from the model - nude and dressed - we will balance traditional representational techniques with expressive, personal approaches to drawing the figure using a variety of media.
