Figure drawing and anatomy class

Starts 9 May 2017, 18.30 – 21.30, Elizabeth Fry Room

A modern drawing system based in the classical renaissance tradition.

Class description
A foundational figure drawing class that will help demystify and give greater control of drawing the human figure with authority. Over the ten weeks we will discuss and develop the different stages through a variety of techniques, lectures and demos, including looking at how Anatomy can help inform our choices. This will include drawing time with a model as we explore these ideas.

This class is ideal for beginners and seasoned artists alike that wish to improve their figure drawing.

Instructor: Richard Smitheman
Richard has been working in the Film Industry in Los Angeles for the last twenty five years for studios like DreamWorks, Warner Bros and Disney. He has studied at The Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art and with Karl Gnass at The American Animation Institute.
