A functional understanding of anatomy, gesture, and proportion is the foundation of any figural artwork. This class will help your portfolio stand out by learning to draw the human figure. Using a variety of materials and techniques, students will gain confidence in mark-making and grounding figures in dynamic compositions while working from a live nude model. You will develop an advanced understanding of how to render the human form while focusing on human anatomy, proportions, poses, and gestures. 

**No class on 4/17 (Easter)
