About This Class

In this beginning figure drawing course, you’ll learn the exciting art of gesture drawing.  Gesture drawing is one of the most important, but least understood parts of the figure drawing process, but Instructor Brent Eviston will guide you through the figure drawing process with the same award-winning instruction and hands on projects that have made his other drawing courses bestsellers.

This course brings the figure drawing studio to you by providing master instruction and timed practice poses for you to draw from.  Once enrolled you’ll learn from numerous anatomical diagrams, detailed drawing demonstrations and hundreds of photographs of a fully nude model.

This course contains 12 lessons, each filled with essential figure drawing techniques. Each lesson contains at least one practice reel with times poses specifically chosen so you can get the most out of the lesson they accompany.

By the end of this course you’ll be able to do gesture drawings that stand alone as works of art as well as lay the foundation for more detailed figure drawings. The Art & Science of Figure Drawing: Gesture (Introduction) and The Art & Science of Figure Drawing: Gesture: Lessons 1-12

***Because this course features photographs of a fully nude model, it is important that you conduct yourself maturely and appropriately in the course.***

Although this is a beginning figure drawing course, it is not a beginning drawing course.  Some basic drawing skills are recommended.
