Instructor: Caitlin Chaisson
Develop a solid foundation in life drawing with this intensive workshop on the human figure, using draped and undraped male and female models. This course explores the timeless concepts of observational drawing and its compositional principles. A variety of materials such as graphite, conte and charcoal are used for both analytical and expressive studies. The class looks to historic and contemporary artists examples for inspiration through short slide lectures, adopting both classical and contemporary drawing methods. No prior experience with drawing is required or expected.
