$270 members / $305 non-members + additional live model fee

Drawing hands and feet competently can be very challenging. Improve your drawing skills by closely studying and understanding their shape, form and volume in conjunction with anatomical study of arms and legs. In a combination of demonstrations, examples, and various exercises, drawing hands, arms, legs and feet will seem less complicated. First, reference will be made to anatomical form, techniques for simplification, followed by expressive mark-making using charcoal and graphite to define skin textures and tonal values. This course is ideally suited to those with some knowledge of life drawing but find they require some assistance with drawing convincing hands and feet. A model will be present for 6 classes and the fee will be split equally between participants. Please note: enrollment for this course is limited to 6 students.

If weather permits, field drawings exploring planes and elevation will occur in the final two sessions of the course.
