Monday Evenings with Lourdes Ong

Drawing the Portrait from Life

NOTE:  March 2024 Start.  Stay tuned for more information.


$350 for non-members. $300 for members.

In this course, students will be introduced to a fundamental approach that uses both gesture and structure to efficiently draw portraits from life. This approach relies on what is seen visually but also understand how light falls on a subject. The anatomy of each feature are introduced to develop a structurally informed and accurate portrait.

Students will practice comparative measuring first, then draw the live model throughout many sessions in order exercise observation while gradually learning about anatomy and rendering. The goal of this course is to enhance technical dexterity, observational skills, and shading in a tactile manner in order to achieve realism/naturalism in their work.

Lourdes will give lectures, demos, and critiques throughout the course. Knowledge of anatomy or experience in drawing is recommended.

Friday Evenings with ANDREI RENTERIA

FUNDAMENTALS OF FIGURE DRAWING



Figure Drawing (360 pixels)Friday Evenings 6:00pm - 8:30pm, 12 weeks from March 22 - June 7th 

Cost:  $440 for members

This course offers an exploration into the fundamentals of drawing the human figure in a procedural approach. Students will explore how to draw the gesture clearly and learn to contain the forms that make up the human body into basic volumes (i.e. spheres, boxes, ellipses and cylinders). 

Towards the end of the course, students will concentrate on specific landmarks of anatomy and useful facts about the human body, in order to develop a strong systematic approach that frees them creatively, while adding complexity and new level of believability to their drawings. 

Students will work from live models and use simple drawing materials. Experience in drawing is recommended.
