The Art of the Figure Workshop

sat17feb3:00 pmsat5:00 pmThe Art of the Figure WorkshopJoin local artist and teacher William McMahan at MOCA for figure drawing on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month.

Event Details

This life drawing series is designed for artists of all levels of experience. Learn and practice general proportions, along with key anatomical landmarks by studying a live nude model. A focus will be placed on creating dynamic figures, demonstration and practice of gesture drawings, and intentional consideration of different levels of finish. During longer poses, artists will be encouraged to work from initially placing joints and being mindful of bone structure, before building general shapes on top of the bones.

Materials are not provided for this class. Bring your own materials to draw. Newsprint and charcoal are recommended for gesture drawing, but any drawing medium is acceptable for longer poses.
