Course description

New for Spring! 

The image of the human face or human body is a subject of universal appeal. Children take to it naturally, but for adults it can seem a daunting task. With instruction, time and practice, participants in this class will learn step-by-step how to approach this challenging and rewarding subject.

Exercises will include:

  • Studies of master drawings
  • Visits to museums
  • Copies of anatomical illustrations
  • Basic drawing exercises to sharpen perception
  • Sessions with a live model
This course would be a good choice for those who:
  • Have longed to be able to draw a portrait or figure.
  • Want the structure and stimulation of a group experience.
  • Would like to sharpen their observation skills.
  • Enjoy figure drawing and wish to practice with guidance from an instructor.
Course requirements

This class is open to all levels. The cost of registration covers models' fees. Museum tickets are not included. Students will be responsible for their own materials. A list with instructions, including addresses for Paris art supply stores will be provided at the first class meeting.
