On Saturday, September 25 2010, the first class of the fall Figure Drawing Class will be held at Renaissance Gallery will begin. It will meet every Saturday from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. through October 30, 2010. The course runs for 6 Saturdays, 3 hours each (for a total of 18 hours of drawing time!) Students are encouraged to bring whatever media they choose to work in. Students need to bring their own easel and their choice of materials. Some students have worked in watercolor, some in oils, some in charcoal; some in pastel...just choose the one you like. Bruce suggests that the drawing pad you choose should be no smaller than 18" X 24" for your larger studies. You may also want to bring a pad 9" X 12" for smaller studies or notes.
Bruce Bowersock is the instructor/monitor for this course. He will stress, as usual, the basic key points to look for and apply when drawing from the live model. The class begins with 10- one minute long gesture drawings so the students can warm up. While the model rests, Bruce addresses any questions or problems anyone might have, and then the class starts 5 -10-15-20 minute poses. The longest pose will be the 45 minutes.
During the breaks, free open discussion between students is encouraged. Bruce will bring reference books on anatomy. Bring refreshments of your choice, but the Gallery usually has coffee available.
The cost for the course $94.50 tax included, for a total of. A modeling fee is divided equally among the class.
Space is limited to 12 students. If the class is closed, there will be another one in Spring 2011.
