The Figure/ Drawing and Painting
Kraig Kiedrowski Instructor
January 15th to April 9th 2018
This is a life class working from live models nude and draped.
The class will begin exploring the figure in line and tone using paper and the usual drawing media such as conte crayon charcoal pen or markers. The poses will be fairly short at the start of the semester to familiarize the student with gesture movement and position of the figure in space. As we progress poses will get longer and challenges of mass shape and composition will be presented. We will proceed from as short as one minute poses in the beginning to as long as three hour poses that will afford full development in value color and composition.
At the front end of the class only drawing equipment will be required. Refer to the materials handout for my Life Drawing Class. As we progress students are encouraged to work in oils or pastels. Acrylics or gouache are also acceptable. Students may work in more than one media during the semester and experimentation with various surfaces is encouraged. I will go over painting materials with each of you once the semester begins.
