Expressive Figure Drawing

Felicita Norris
Monday–Thursday, June 18–July 13

9:30 am–12:30 pm | Studio 14

Materials List

Learn to tell stories, communicate visually, and imagine new worlds through large- and small-scale drawings working from models and beyond. Use a range of 2-D media including charcoal, ink, graphite, gouache, and collage. Beginning with work from live models and observational drawing, followed by more involved works from photography and more, you will uncover the nuances of composition, line, value, and scale as related to the figure. 

Models in this class are nude.
