Figure drawing is timeless and important because it seeks to portray the complex beauty of the human person. In this course, students will be taught how to draw the nude human figure from a live model using charcoal and chalk on paper. Prior drawing experience and some knowledge of basic drawing concepts, such as perspective, is recommended. Lessons will use a structural approach geared towards helping students draw what they see. Primarily, the class will consist of demonstrations, gesture drawings, various quick exercises, and long pose drawings. There will also be individualized help when necessary.
