Figure Drawing: Short and Long Pose Life Drawing
Figure Drawing: Short and Long Pose Life Drawing
Instructor: Jon deMartin
July 20 — July 24, 2020
Time: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Tuition: $599

The basis of this workshop is to build a solidly constructed three-dimensional figure using line for the modeling of form with gradations of light, half tone & shadow. Artists will gain an understanding and appreciation of how line can construct three-dimensional volumes in space through the dynamic balancing of the masses. This course will expand their capacity to draw, paint and sculpt from life and from the imagination.

Short and long poses will concentrate on the principles of the figure’s action, perspective, geometry and anatomy. Several sessions will be devoted to the long pose for the study of light on form, and allow the student to process and implement the principles learned during the short poses.

Students will gain both practical experience and an historical perspective on the use of materials and techniques employed by draftsmen from the Renaissance up to contemporary art.

We will further explore and understand through lectures, discussions the application of drawing techniques for the artist’s ongoing search for form and meaning. The instructor will present material in the form of demonstrations and historical references as a practical application to life drawing.

The principles in this class and additional demonstration drawings can be seen in his book,
Drawing Atelier the figure, how to draw in the classical style’ (Amazon).
