Class Description: Figure & Portrait

In this class students will learn fundamental techniques for successfully portraying the human figure, from the use of gesture to quickly and accurately capture the essence of any pose, to a system of comparative measurement for establishing correct and believable proportion. These are essential foundations to which further development of both detail and tonal values can bring about a convincing sense of form.


  • Short poses designed to strengthen one’s speed, and ability to focus on the essentials

  • Longer sittings will allow more time to build upon a solid structure

  • Regular demonstrations

  • One-on-one critiques
