This is an ideal class for beginner-intermediate students who want to learn a simple step-by-step process to represent the human figure in perspective, through exercises of study and sketching drawings in different positions and locations we’ll understand and draw the human body from every point of view.
No previous drawing training is required. These four classes are perfect for new students but also a continuation for those who took previous Human Figure Drawing courses.
The class will cover various poses, actions, and gestures without a model. The instructor will explain the correct relationships between forms of the human body through different points of view, frontal and side positions of the whole human figure in perspective, drawings of the body in different levels of depth locations, foreshorten, and building of specific areas of the body from several angles.
