In this drawing workshop, figure drawing in black-and-white dry media is the technique and the human figure is the subject. It is an introduction to drawing from the nude model in a studio setting, and incorporates constructive critique. Beginning with a presentation that explores the hidden skeletal and muscular structures common to all humans, students build on that understanding as they practice rendering the surface landmarks of skin, hair and the features of the face and body.

This course takes place at the Westerly Education Center.
