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 the Figure Construct Class is a pre-requisite for this class.

Figure Construct Class (10 classes)

Saturdays, January 11th to March 14th
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Cost: $550 (model fee included)
Instructor: John Asimacopoulos

Crucial to experienced painters and beginning artists alike are the foundations of drawing the human figure. A successful draft of the figure requires elegantly simplifying the subject to its most basic framework, but, once mastered this simple construct yields great dividends as the piece progresses.

In this course, students will receive individual instruction in drafting the human figure from live model observation and the academic method. Particular focus will be given to achieving dynamic gesture and conveying elements such as proportion, mass, and perspective all while portraying only what information is necessary. Poses range from three to six hours.

Those wishing to gain experience with the human figure and/or develop a more systematic approach to drawing and painting should consider taking this class. There are no prerequisite courses needed and all levels are welcome.
