Together the Art Garage & NWTC Artisan Center are collaborating to bring you a series of Figure Drawing Nights! We'll alternate locations, models, and even instructors.
Bring your favorite supplies and learn from instructors with different styles while they share their expertise as well as tips for capturing figures on paper.
Figure Drawing will introduce participants to the basic principles and techniques to successfully draw the human figure. Participants will have the opportunity to draw from a nude model and/or clothed model, with guided instruction. Students will learn how to lay out the basic structure of the figure in space and build upon that structure with light and shadow in graphite and/or charcoal. This is a relaxed environment and all ability levels welcome!
Workshop supplies are NOT INCLUDED with the registration fee. Students ARE required to purchase any supplies for this workshop. Participants should bring at least a sketchbook and No. 2 pencil with an eraser. Other suggested supplies to bring (but not required) include: sketchbooks; drawing pads; range of graphite pencils, 2B-4H (not mechanical); charcoal; charcoal pencils; pink eraser (hard eraser with an edge); kneaded eraser; chamois; tortillon (blending stump).
