French Academy FIGURE Drawing & Painting - Part A

Workshop

Ages: 16 - No Limit

Ability: Beginner

Expertise: Painting

This figure drawing course features a traditional "long pose" where the model returns to the same pose over many class sessions (and will return for the same pose in Part B) so the artists can explore and capture the subtle nuances of the figure and refine their drawing in Part A and their painting in Part B.

This course focuses on the basics of traditional classical figure drawing practiced by the French Academy from the 1900's. Students will begin with charcoal and white chalk on paper to hone in on their drawing skill in Part A, before moving to painting in Part B. Students will learn the skills of drawing the model as accurately as they can, while approaching concepts of how to understand gesture, light and shade, quality of line, anatomy of the figure and how to keep their work simple, realistic, and elegant.
