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.
In the beginning we will be 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 composition and color will be presented.
At the front end of the class only drawing equipment will be required. Refer to the materials handout for my Life Drawing Class. Everyone progresses at their own pace in this class. Students may continue to work with simple drawing materials for the rest of the semester or may progress to oils pastels acrylics or gouache as poses get longer. Experimentation with various materials and surfaces is encouraged. I will go over painting materials with each of you once the semester begins.
