WORKSHOP

This is class 3: How to draw Expressive Figures
(here is class 1.)
(here is class 2.)
(here is class 4.)
(here is class 5.)

After drawing basics and some fun with watercolors, in this class we are approaching the deep end - drawing people that move!
If you would like to add lively people to your sketches but don’t know how, this workshop is for you. In this 4 hour session we visit the Easter Event held by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (google it!) in Golden Gate Park! We’ll explore how to draw quick expressive figures that convey a sense of story and location. We will learn to identify quickly what interests us in a figure and focus to capture this essence with line. We will learn how to 'buy time' with combining and assembling people into a scene - a "Frankenstein" cut and paste method. We will use watercolor selectively for interest. This workshop offers a step-by step curriculum and is suitable for everyone – beginner to professional. Plenty of individual feedback will be provided. Lots of sketching time! At the end everyone will have sketched people and should feel confident in continuing their journey.

A material list, handout and further details will be made available after sign up about a week before the class.
Number of students: min.8/ max.15
