About This Class


This lesson will be over the basics of drawing the hand anatomy. We will break this process into simple steps of shapes, lines, forms, light and shade to form different poses of the hand. These three steps will allow you a solid foundation to build your observation skills on and grow in different still life perspectives of the human form. All hands are different so let's see yours! I encourage you to share your project with us all and any takeaways you might have to add to the class.

Materials:

-Either a digital sketchbook with pen and access to an art app or a physical Sketch pad with a pen, charcoal, or pencil.

-camera for taking photos of different hand perspectives

Optional materials: tracing paper if you choose to follow our digital layer approach through a physical sketch.
