“Drawing“, Matisse once said, “is like making an expressive gesture with the advantage of permanence.” Make an expressive gesture within your drawing practice by exploring the human figure as a theme in one’s own personal expression. This one-hour Zoom session coaches the figure drawing enthusiast past the challenges of technique and finding one’s artistic voice starting with twenty minutes of drawing from the model in a variety of poses and then through a series of illustrated lectures and top down video demonstrations. Each class features a video sketch of a figurative artist, work, or trend that has impacted the artistic evolution of figure drawing. Homework helps the student to integrate the lessons into their practice and thus all are encouraged to submit work for the critique at the end of each class.
