Workshop Fee: $40 members / $50 non-members

A figure drawing is a drawing of the human form in any of its various shapes and postures using any of the drawing media. Life drawing is a drawing of the human figure from observation of a live model. A figure drawing can be a sketch on its own merit, or a study done in preparation for a final more finished work. Students will learn basic ways to create a drawing of a human figure from life, understand proportions, and use different techniques such as graphite pencils, charcoal, etc. There will be a model for the workshop.
