Figure Drawing Class
Wednesday, October 17
3:00 to 5:00 pm
Eva Caten Remington Education Center
323 Washington Street, Ogdensburg

The human figure, clothed or unclothed, is a complex form. It takes time to study the human form and to understand how it moves. This class will explore anatomy, how the body moves and supports itself, and how to translate that into your artwork. Participants will learn about proportion, perspective, and many other challenges that present themselves when working with the human figure.

Participants will be drawing live clothed models using pencil, conte, and charcoal.
 
All ranges of experience are welcome. Materials will be provided, though artists are welcome to bring their own materials if they prefer. The cost of the class is $15 for members of the Remington Museum and $25 for non-members. The class is limited to 12 participants. CLICK HERE to register online. Or call 315-393-2425 or email desmond@fredericremington.org to ask questions or sign up.
