The Dynamic Gestures and Figures is a figure drawing class with a strong focus on rendering the figure with a sense of gestural rhythm, emotion, and storytelling. Geared towards those interested in comic book art, animation, figure drawing, and illustration. Our class encourages students to breathe life into their work with unique performances from models that generate dynamic poses, with a sense of action and purpose. Active lectures taking place during poses, speak on techniques to “loosen up” during drawing to capture the natural flow of movement and purpose in the figure, leading them to dynamic works that live beyond the page. Sketchbook reviews during breaks that push patrons beyond their current level and sensibilities, pushing them into new realms of creativity powered by the imagination.
Classes are held every1st Friday of the month beginning January 5, 2018. Each 2 and a half hour class will focus on a new topic that culminates in a broadening understanding of figure drawing and its nature in storytelling media.
