Figure and Portrait Drawing
Figure and Portrait Drawing
Instructor: JaFang Lu
April 19 — June 28, 2019
Time: 9 - 4 p.m.
Tuition: $798

The goal of this class is to help students develop skills that will enable them to do a longer (more finished) figure/portrait drawing without sacrificing the dynamism and spirit of the pose/sitter.

Through demos, lectures, and exercises, the instructor introduces information and concept that help students understand and analyze visual cues, namely - gestures, proportions, structures and forms – and translate that information onto the paper in an organized, efficient and organic (non-mechanical) way.

Students are guided to learn “how to” think about drawing problems rather than being told what to do minute by minute and how to pull out of trouble they run into rather than developing a mechanical way of working that avoids all mistakes.

In essence, the class is about helping students develop problem-solving skills and is suited for students of all drawing abilities who are comfortable in making mistakes and learning from them and who are both at ease of being guided as well as working out problems independently at times.

The overarching progression of the class is from larger principles to specific information and from shorter/gestural to longer poses.

Instructor JaFang Lu received the 2012 Leeway Foundation for Art and Change Grant. She holds a Bachelors of Art from the City College of New York University.
