About This Class

If you always wanted to draw people but didn’t know where to start, this class is for you. I will explain how to create fun, unique, and expressive sketches of people using live models. No prior knowledge of human anatomy, measuring or shading techniques is required. This class is will be interesting for beginners and for experienced artists who want to loosen up or try some new ideas. Draw your friends and family, or go out and sketch – this fast sketching technique does not require sitting still for hours, so anybody can be your model. We will be mixing various sketching materials – watercolor, gouache, color pencils, inks - to create a sketch in your unique style. We will also talk about how to get proportions right without lengthy measuring and revising your drawing. But most of all, this class will be about building your confidence, having fun and expressing yourself as an artist.
