The Expressive Figure
68 in stock
“Drawing“, Matisse once said, “is like making an expressive gesture with the advantage of permanence.” Elevate your figurative drawing practice by exploring how one’s own expressive gesture can be utilized and applied within your figure drawings. This one-and-a-half-hour Zoom session coaches the figure drawing enthusiast past the challenges of technique and in finding one’s artistic voice starting with twenty minutes of drawing from a video feed from a
Croquis cafe model in a variety of poses followed by a series of illustrated lectures, top-down video demonstrations, and individualized critique. Each class features an informative discourse on a figurative artist, a particular work, or a trend that has impacted the artistic evolution of figure drawing. Homework, usually based on the previous week’s Croquis session but not strictly limited to, helps the student to integrate the lessons into their practice, and thus all are encouraged to submit their homework for the critique for the last half hour of each class.
Deadline for registration is 24 hours before the first class. For Zoom links and other important information about this course, please check your student dashboard.
