Ogdensburg, NY — The Frederic Remington Art Museum continues its series of art classes with figure drawing class on Wednesday, October 17, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Taught by local artist Julie Pratt, the class is appropriate for teens and adults. Participants will be drawing live clothed models using pencil, conté, and charcoal.

The figure drawing 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.

The class will be taught at the Eva Caten Remington Education Center, 323 Washington Street, Ogdensburg. All skill levels are welcome, and 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. Call 315-393-2425 or email desmond@fredericremington.org to ask questions or sign up, or visit fredericremington.org to register online.

“To me there’s nothing quite like drawing or painting the human figure. Whether it’s portraits or the full figure, I find the emotional connection I make with my model helps fuel my work,” says Pratt.
