In this workshop we will delve into the complex world of human anatomy and proportion, and how to get it right in your artwork! The human body is a wonder of symmetry and grace, and is really not that complicated to draw once you know the formula. Using step-by-step procedures you will learn the rules of basic anatomical proportion, relativity, differences between masculine and feminine, and how to translate correct proportion into gesture.

This class is appropriate for those just beginning to draw as well as more advanced artists. This one-day workshop is part of a series of three workshops that break down the human figure. They can be purchased as an individual stand-alone workshop, or as a three-part intensive to get you started on some of the more challenging aspects of capturing the human figure.

If you're interested in continuing on with the human figure workshop series please consider enrolling in:
