Introduction to Life Drawing – Saturdays

Arts Workshop

Workshop Details

Life Drawing is an important building block for all arts-based careers. It’s also an essential skill for any artist to develop, not to mention a great source of relaxation and stress-relief. This Life Drawing course follows the teaching methods of the celebrated Kimon Nicolaides, designed to allow anyone to improve their technique and recommended by prominent studios like Disney and Warner Brothers. You’ll be amazed by your progress as you follow a series of exercises designed to get the artist to use touch, empathy and the kinesthetic sense to capture the human form. Materials used include pencil, ink, charcoal, and conte crayon.

Nude models will be used for this class.

This class is open to beginners as well as those with some experience.

Ages: 15+

Please note materials are not included in this cost. Students will be given a material list prior to the start of the class.
