Mass and Light in Figure Drawing
Monday–Friday, 1:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Instructor present each day

This figure drawing workshop will focus on mass and light when working from the live model. Working in either charcoal or paint, students will focus on keying the values to create a strong impact of light, form, mass and atmosphere. In addition, there will be an ongoing discussion of composition and design, through values, masses and rhythms. Instruction will include individual and group critiques, as well as demonstrations and lectures. Students of all levels and experience are welcome
