Participants in this figure drawing workshop will develop and strengthen a skill set for drawing the live model. Savannah will guide participants through the figure drawing process with demonstrations and in-depth critiques. The process begins with the “block in”, which aims for a dynamic gesture as well as accurate proportion and shapes. After, we will move into modeling form through understanding of the light source. Basic anatomy, materials, comparative measuring, light and form will be discussed.
