2 three-hour Saturday Figure Drawing sessions (total 6 hours) with live model (draped/unclothed). The class will introduce and expand upon participants’ ability to render the human figure from life. A prior understanding of the materials and perspective drawing are highly encouraged.
The sessions will revolve around the study of proportion, structure and articulation of the human form as the primary means toward expressive drawing. Sessions will be loosely instructed through demonstration and individualized guidance by 3 Southwestern University Studio Art majors’–Katlyn Hellmer, Sophia Anthony, and Danbi Heo. (*see bio below)
Participants are to supply their own paper, pencils, charcoal, and conte crayon (suggested) OR are welcome to bring specialized drawing materials. The services of a live art model are available as are easels, tables and chairs.
The professional live art model for both sessions will be David Perkins, who has modeled for figure drawing at Austin Community College, Austin Visual Arts Association, the Art Institute of Austin, and Southwestern University.
Please note: the live art model draped or unclothes–please be courteous and respectful to everyone during studio sessions.
