Weekend classes are a great way to continue growing as an artist even with a busy weekday schedule.
Long Pose Figure Drawing - One pose, 30 hours
Saturdays, April 15th to June 17th
10:00 am - 1:00pm
Instructor: Emmy DeMusis
Beginning in graphite, students complete a 'cartoon'. This is a preliminary drawing that establishes proportion, body type, gesture and the correct grouping of light and dark. This important phase creates a solid structure. Students then transfer the cartoon to a chosen paper and the drawing continues in either graphite, carbon pencil or charcoal. The instructor will assist students in choosing an area of the figure to fully render. Through the articulation of subtle plane changes and correct value assignments, the students work towards a naturalistic and volumetric drawing.
Please note that if the student is new to class and has not previously taken the Tuesday evening Construct Class, a portion of this course will be devoted to the introduction of the ARA figure drawing method. During this time, students can expect to move around the room, drawing the figure from one different position per class until familiar with the system.
The instructor will provide individual critiques, demos and lectures. All levels welcome.
Saturday Drawing Class (10 classes) SOLD OUT
Saturdays, April 22 to June 24th

For students who wish to participate in the Atelier Program, we offer a Saturday class in which students will work on the regular school curriculum. Students working outside the atelier program should also consider this class as it will improve your ability to see and think about value and rendering form. This class will run for 10 weeks.
This class is full, please add your name to the waitlist.
