Head & Figure Construction – Live

Course Overview:

This is a unique opportunity to study with two accomplished and warmhearted artist-educators in the same course. Ken and Stephanie are both well known for their ability to help each person find their own unique drawing abilities. Each week there will be a life model.

On day one, Ken will introduce a simplified approach to gesture drawing and the fundamentals of figure and head construction. For this class, you will need only newsprint, a drawing board, vine charcoal, a kneaded eraser, and one colored pastel for accents. 

During weeks two and three, Ken will go deeper into the importance of gesture drawing in relation to constructing and composing longer poses.

During the final three weeks, Stephanie will continue to build on Ken’s lessons but will include longer poses that will allow students time to incorporate the basics into an actual process of drawing or painting more finished figures and portraits. 

 

Materials:

You do not need to buy everything on this list. Only buy materials that relate to the medium you plan to work with, or if you are more advanced, bring your own supplies. On day one you will only need newsprint, a drawing board, vine charcoal, kneaded eraser, and one colored pastel for accents.
