Figure Drawing for Beginners

Visual Arts Brampton

Tuesdays Feb 1st till March 8th – 7pm till 9:30pm


This Workshop is ideal for the beginner new to life drawing or for those who may want to develop their skills further.

Students will learn how to render the human figure beginning with the starting point of any figure drawing, which is the gesture.

How you interpret the gesture sets up what you can do with the rest of your drawing.

Understanding the basic human anatomy can help overcome preconceptions in the complex task if understanding what you see.

Referencing photos and a life model, this workshop will examine essential anatomy and important surface landmarks on the figure; developing a greater awareness of what makes a gesture more dramatic.
