The Figure: Drawing into Painting (10weeks/Online)
Instructor: Martin Campos
September 26 - December 5 (ten weeks)
Saturdays, 10 am -1 pm EST
The human figure has been a predominant image in art for thousands of years, yet its interpretations and depictions are endlessly varied. Emphasizing the continued refinement of perceptual drawing skills, the course concentrates on the structure, movement and expressive qualities of the figure in space. Concepts that may be touched upon include:
• anatomical landmarks,
• value control,
• planes as a means for finding form,
• weight, and
• placement on the page and composition.
A combination of short gestural poses and longer studies be included. Students work to understand the uniqueness of each model and pose through a variety of materials beginning with charcoal and pastel, then moving to quick studies in paint. Those who wish to only draw are welcome to do so.
Who is this class for: This class is for students with prior drawing experience who are ready to take on the challenges and the allure of the human figure. This class will be taught live through Zoom.
