    Registration for the January session will open on November 19th, 2018 at our Monthly Meeting to allow non-email registrants the same opportunity time frame as email registrants.

    The goal is to help you create an ‘internal model’. That is, to be able to draw a constructed human figure, front, side, ¾ views based on a knowledge of proportion, basic forms of body masses and facial features. In addition, we will look at poses, such as walking, standing, sitting, reclining, fitting into a composition context, such as a street, room or plaza, basic clothing. This will help you to draw from memory, imagination, reference sources and from life. We will use slides rather than a live model, so everyone gets a good seat. Beginners will get the essentials that they need and more advanced people will find much useful info also.
