The Figure in Motion
 with Rebecca Skelton

Tuesdays, 6 classes

Skill Level: All Levels

Offered for:
Winter Session 1 (Jan 10, 17, 24, 31, Feb 7 and 14) – CANCELLED


Our approach for this class is based on two ideas:
1) To make better drawings or paintings, you need to make better beginning sketches.
2) People rarely hold still.
We will attempt to imply motion on the paper through the use of gesture and quick structural studies. By trying to capture the motion in quick sketches, we will be practicing our beginnings. The fast drawing is a stepping stone to more in depth drawing which will usually be the last pose of the evening.
