ONSITE: Figure Drawing (Ages 15-18)
Use the human figure to build and fine tune your drawing skills as we study motion, proportion and expression. As diverse as the art world can be, figure study is still a standard in any comprehensive education program, and a must-have in any art student’s portfolio.
- Models wear bathing suits or the equivalent.
- This class counts as a core course toward VisArts’ Art League Certificate.
