Figure Drawing from Imagination Workshop

Aug 12-13 (Sat & Sun), 10 am–3 pm

with instructor Sean Bodley

This workshop is for people who are interested in capturing the dynamic energy of the human figure in a drawing. We will look at a variety of approaches to this timeless subject and practice a range of techniques. Tools will be shared to help visualize the figure, breakdown proportions, and see skeletal and muscular anatomy. Demonstrations will be given for all major concepts and individual instruction throughout the class. All experience levels welcome, however the ability to draw a sphere, cube, and cylinder from imagination is recommended to get the most out of the workshop. A list of recommended materials will be sent at least two weeks prior to class.

Fee: $140.00

To sign up, please go online and select Summer 2017 Adult Ed and look for the workshop or call our office at 814-234-2740.
