Long Pose Portrait Drawing Class

Thursday Evenings 6:30 - 9:30 pm

  April 23rd to May 14th
Please register by April 19th

Drawing is the foundation of all realist art. In this 4 week class, Noah will show you classical techniques for drawing a realistic portrait. Noah will teach the use of plumb lines, comparative measurement, and tilt angle to find correct proportions. Working from a live clothed model, you will learn how to start your drawing, see and record shapes clearly and simply, and model form by carefully observing the properties of light.

You will work on two different drawings in this class. The first two classes will be the same model and pose and the last two classes a different model and pose. The focus will be on refining ones drawing. We will work on grey paper with pencils and white pastel.  

Lots of demos and individual instruction!

Student comments

"Noah is an excellent draughtsman and a caring and attentive teacher. I studied drawing with Noah for a year and learned a lot of techniques which greatly improved my representational drawing. I highly recommend his class to anyone looking to enhance their observational skills-the knowledge will benefit your artistic practice immensely!"
