Basic Figure Drawing & Beyond

 (6 weeks)
Ages: 18+ (Or 16+ with Parent Permission)
Beginner students are invited to expand their drawing skills with a live model and instruction from Paul Beelitz. We’ll warm up with gesture drawings, explore contour drawing, and straight line drawing as we work from more basic linear figure poses. We’ll learn about negative space and how it can help with proportion, too. Other exercises will help us develop mass, balance, and a proportionally accurate figure. Continuing and advanced students are welcome to participate in the class or work independently on figure study. You're welcome to bring any of your own supplies. Please note that the model will be nude.

Once you’re certain of your design, you will use tools to carve away a thin layer of the glazed clay, a technique called sgrafitto. You can make your design as minimal or ornate as you like.
