Knowledge of the human form is essential to artists. Proportion and measurement, volume and space, basic anatomy, and format and composition will all be explored by participants in this workshop. Using this knowledge, students will combine gesture and thumbnails, expressive mark-making, atmospheric perspective, and dramatic value and line while drawing figures in both classic and contemporary media. This immersion will also examine facial expressions as a form of nonverbal communication and students will learn rapid visualization drawing skills while gaining additional knowledge of the anatomy of the human form, with specific attention to the face and facial movements. Students will draw from observation, using a variety of exercises to capture the emotion and attitude of the face as it twists, stretches, pinches, and puckers. Beginners to advanced skill levels are welcome. Some drawing experience is helpful.
