Figure Drawing with The Sharon Academy
Gain greater confidence in your ability to compose and render the human form. This course provides an in-depth study of how to draw the human figure using live models. Within a positive and supportive environment, you will focus on basic proportions and proper construction of the human form as well as light and shadow, contour, line, and composition. Frequent individual critiques will help you personalize your creative thinking. Students will take turns drawing and modeling for one another. This class is open to all Sharon Academy Students. Some prior drawing experience is recommended.
