Expressive Life Drawing classes
Learn to draw, or hone your skills with new, surprising and fun
exercises. We generate a wide variety of marks and approaches to
drawing, diving in and covering our pages with new experiments and
trials. We bring these techniques to the body, drawing a model, and also
working with more abstract approaches. You will produce vibrant and
exciting drawings, and lots of them!
We cover: gesture drawing, extended gesture, composition, selection of work, reflection on our processes, and much more!
“your classes are utterly different to anything from books and
more traditional classes. You give students the permission we need to
make a total mess of something and still feel OK about that. Your
leadership is outstanding and I was really glad to have the classes work
like a unified team rather than a bunch of individual students.” Workshop participant
