Great introductory class for novices or for beginning artists who need practice in figure sketching! We will start by utilizing art references and then move on to a clothed model for inspiration in exploring basic figure sketching concepts.

The human form will gently emerge through soft charcoal studies and you will also enjoy the excitement and immediacy of quick gestural sketches and other approaches.

Note: Prior watercolor students may focus on that medium.

Supplies: Students share cost of charcoal sticks and ream of large size paper. Other supplies are available locally. Info emailed upon registration.

Prices: $150 for YAC members and $165 for non-members.
