Susan Hambleton Visual artist

The human body remains an invaluable resource in the study of drawing. With the figure as our focus, this course aims to enrich your artist's hand and increase your mastery of media (charcoal, graphite, sanguine, wet media and collage). We will work on refining your skills through drawing the model in short and long poses. Practice in the integration of media will be part of each class, supported by examples of the masters such as Matisse, Picasso and Diebenkorn. Weekly critiques will end the session. This course is a dynamic way to learn from others while further developing your own voice and confidence in drawing.
PREREQUISITE: A basic figure drawing course, or equivalent.
NOTE: Please bring a newsprint pad (18x24"), charcoal and erasers (Klik or similar quality) to the first session.
