This three-session workshop will focus on figure drawing using the envelope & block-in method. This method will teach students how to draw what they see rather than what their brain’s symbol system tells them is there. Issues with drawing the figure in perspective melt away as we learn to visually “flatten” our subject and look at relative angles and shadow shapes to achieve very realistic renderings.

We will work from drawing casts as well as live models, both clothed and nude. In addition to graphite on white paper or newsprint that students will bring to class, we will also try working with sanguine pencils on toned paper.

Class 1: Drawing Demo & Drawing from a Cast
Class 2: Drawing from a clothed model
Class 3: Drawing from a life model
