Artist Andrew Sookrah will assist young artists to build a solid foundation in figurative drawing techniques. This workshop is perfect for students planning on applying to art schools and interested in enhancing their artist portfolios.
Students will learn to begin with basic techniques and review drawing styles of classical and contemporary artists. Students will discover their own drawing abilities while building confidence to tackle the complexities of depicting the human form. Following basic grids while working with clothed models, the class will explore different drawing techniques; from gestures, short to mid poses, as well as sustained long poses.
