Figure Drawing “Expressive and Gestural”: Learn to Draw the Nude Figure with New Materials & New Methods.
Learn new and exciting ways to paint and draw the nude figure that are easy, free flowing and fun. The emphasis is on using mixed media techniques with unusual materials and techniques to achieve a surprisingly artistic and pleasing result without being too overly technical. Drawing the figure is more fun and less difficult if you’ve got the right tools. We will have fun using Creta “Aquastics”, Sennelier oil pastels, Creta “Aquabriques”, “Art Chunkies” , Fabriano papers and other exciting materials which will all be provided to the class. Bill will demonstrate ways of drawing that will expand your artistic skills and enable you to achieve a higher expressive level. As you learn to draw the figure with courage, freshness and freedom a world of new artistic possibilities will open up. We will work from a live model. In this class Bill will introduce and demonstrate anmaterial from his upcoming new book “Expressive Figure Drawing” which will be published by Watson-Guptill/Random House in December 2010.
