Fundamental Figure Drawing

dates: 10 / 04 / 2022 - 11 / 01 / 2022

Each week builds on the last as we explore the fundamentals of figure drawing.

‚ÄčIn this class, you will learn:

  • Gesture
  • Structure
  • Anatomy
  • Shape
  • Value
  • Edge


The human figure is incredibly complex. This class will help students learn a methodical and logical approach to figure drawing that will act as a strong foundation that can be built upon for the rest of their lives. Each week will build upon the last starting with gesture, which is followed by structure and then, finally, light and shadow. Both the Reilly method and constructive approaches will be discussed and used. The final week will bring all this information together into a long, full value figure drawing. Topics include gesture/Reilly method, structure, shape, value, and edge.
