I wanted to let you know about a new 8-week course I am offering, ‘Quick Figure Sketching’ from the live model, that starts on Saturday, April 9th and finishes on Saturday, June 4th (skipping Easter weekend), and will be located in the beautiful Garage Performance Studio near Porta Romana. This course, which is intended for adults, or minors with consent from their parents, derives it inspiration from the many figure drawing courses that I attended for five years while working at the Disney Studios, taught by veteran animators and teachers from the finest art schools in the U.S…the themes covered will include proportions and anatomy, and drapery drawing, among others. Unlike most figure drawing courses offered in Florence which focus on much longer poses, this course promises to be a unique opportunity to study figure drawing in a very dynamic way. For five of the eight weeks we will be drawing from the nude figure, and for three weeks from the costumed figure.
If you would like to participate in this course, please let me know as soon as possible (at the latest by March 26th). And if you know of others who might be interested in participating in this course, I appreciate your passing this information and the attached flyer on to them…thanks very much!
Hope to see you all on April 9th!
