Construction, rhythm, gesture and basic anatomy. Learn to draw dynamic figures.

In this fundamentals class for figure drawing you will learn the basics of drawing people. We show you methods to find the right proportions and to depict poses dynamically. In order to learn as effectively as possible, you will draw many simple figures, but also some that are more elaborate. Gradually we will work on foreshortening, shading and basic anatomy. The instructor demonstrates all techniques and is present the whole time for questions or corrections.

The drawing course is suitable for beginners, but also for intermediate students from the fields of fashion design, illustration and character design who want to improve their figurative drawing. If you have not drawn regularly before or if you don't know what tone values, edges or negative shapes are, we recommend that you first take our drawing fundamentals course.
