Drawing the Figure from Memory and Imagination
Date: March 1, 8, 15 and 22
If you have always wanted to draw what’s in your head but it never seems to come out the way you had hoped, this course can help. Through this class, we explore drawing with pen and ink and how to work with a permanent medium to create dynamic and successful drawings. Expand your knowledge of anatomy and movement and how to put together a figure. We will construct a drawing without the necessity of having the perfect model or reference photo.
Format: Live Zoom (a Zoom link will be sent a few days before the workshop).
