Basic Human Forms

Human forms are difficult to draw and paint. We move, tilt, bend, sit, walk, run and come in an eclectic flavor of heights, ages, sizes, hair and skin color.

Many artists are uncomfortable adding into their works human shape and movements because of variability. Further the artist has to portray our movements on a two-dimension, static canvas!

By avoiding human shapes, an artist is missing adding focal points, fun and interesting perspectives.

To build techniques and confidence one needs a good understanding of average human proportions.

This class attempts to provide some straightforward examples and principles of human forms and proportions.

These principles have been used for centuries and more details are easily found in human drawing instructional manuals and videos.

All you need for this class is a sketch pad and your favorite pen or pencils. (and practice, practice, practice…  )

Registration deadline is Wednesday, February 19th, 2020.
