Figure Drawing

Develop your observation skills and learn how to draw from a live model in our figure drawing class. This class will help you develop your understanding of proportion, action, line sensitivity, and the illusion of volume. Each class will start with short poses by a nude model (15 sec -10 min) and transition to longer ones (20 min-1 hour).
