Drawing the Figure

Portrait by Gideon Egbuchulam

In this drawing intensive, participants will learn about illustrating the human anatomy from head to toe.  Develop your observational eye and technical skills through exercises, live model drawing, experimenting with materials, in-class discussions, and one-on-one support as needed to inform your draftsmanship. We will also take inspiration from prominent styles of past and contemporary artists that have shaped the illustrative landscape and representation of the human form as we know it.  No experience necessary, all are welcome!

***Tuition covers two 3-hour in-class sessions with Bay Area  Models’ Guild models

Accessibility – This class takes place in the San Pablo Community Classroom, located on the first floor. Please email classes@kala.org regarding any  accessibility needs prior to enrolling so we can assess if we are able to accommodate you safely and efficiently.
