During this COVID-19 pandemic, we highly recommend parents and students stay on top of learning. We can, together, use this opportunity to explore, learn, and develop a new and exciting way to teach online art and design programs.

This class will be a more in depth, advanced version of our usual figure drawing. We will be focusing on anatomy: breaking down muscle groups, learning how they can be drawn in space, and understanding how they fit together on the body in different poses. There will be both short and long poses for gesture and rendering. Students will be using traditional media like graphite and charcoal.
