Have you ever wondered what is under the surface when you draw the human figure? In this six week workshop, Jennifer Giovanucci will teach human anatomy specifically for the artist. An understanding of the skeleton and overlying musculature is essential to defining the form of the human body and is helpful with portraiture as well. Learn to draw the human figure with a combination of lecture, bone studies and drawing from a live nude model.

Through life size drawing demonstrations, Jennifer will describe how the muscles in our bodies work with our bones. Students will be able to put their new knowledge into action with two hours of figure drawing and bone studies from a nude model with instructor available for guidance and answering questions.

Students should bring a large newsprint or drawing pad (18" x 24" is recommended), a few earth tone colored pencils (we carry a good selection of colors in Prismacolor or Faber Castell), graphite pencils, an eraser, and a pencil sharpener. Students are also welcome to bring any preferred materials of their choice, such as charcoal or pastels.

You can also call the store ahead of time and have any or all of these items collected and held for when you arrive for the class.

Class 1: Introduction / Identifying bony landmarks
Class 2: The shoulder girdle
Class 3: The trunk
Class 4: The arm
Class 5: Upper leg and knee
Class 6: Lower leg and overview

Note: these anatomy drawing sessions will utilize a fully nude model.
Please register as soon as you plan on attending. Classes that don't reach the minimum number of students required will be canceled 48 hours before the first day of class. Last minute registrations are accepted if class minimum is met and space allows.
