June Figure Drawing Class - RICA

I am pleased to announce that I will be teaching Figure Drawing this summer at Raleigh Institute of Contemporary Art.  In the summers, RICA offers 2 weeks sessions (to more easily accommodate those who wish to go on vacation).  Starting in June, I will be teaching 2 week sessions of Figure Drawing on Sundays.  Here is the class description:

Working from the live model, students will develop an understanding of proper proportions, structure and basic anatomy of the human figure. We will use a variety of short gesture poses and work toward longer sustained poses. Basic principles of drawing will be discussed to explore the use of line variation, and methods of blocking in of volumetric forms to represent the expressive qualities of the human figure. This class with strengthen your drawing ability whether you are an absolute beginner or advanced student.

June Sessions:
Sundays June 5 & 12 1-4pm
Sundays June 19 & 26 1-4pm

You can sign up by visiting the Class 2011 page or by calling 919-800-0208

Also, the un-instructed Open Figure Drawing sessions will continue every Thursday night 7-10pm.  This is a good way to practice what you learn for only $10/ night or $8 for currently enrolled RICA students.
