Proportion & Figure Drawing at Oil and Cotton

Instructor: Gina Garza
September 9 through October 21
6 Week Series :: Sundays :: 2-5pm

We have added many new classes to our fall and winter calender. Figure drawing will be offered in two new six week series classes. The first series, Proportion & Figure Drawing begins September 9 and runs through October 21. Students will be given the opportunity to learn the most vital tool/technique in figure drawing - proportion. Proportion is the most difficult component to master in completing an anatomical drawing of the figure. Translating a live model to paper of a different size is an even greater challenge. In this workshop series students will learn techniques such as sighting and organizational line; both will aid in building a strong universal drawing foundation.
Supplies available in Oil and Cotton shop.

Class Dates:
September 9, 16, 23
No class September 30
October 7, 14, 21

Gina Garza's second series Line & Figure is offered November 4 through December 16.

*The oil painting included in the class description is by artist Nicole Eisenman, and is entitled The Drawing Class, 2011.
