Long-Pose Figure Drawing WORKSHOP: The French Academic Method


with Peter Green

Intermediate to Advanced

Work from life to study the nude figure. Instructor Peter Green will guide students through the basics of the French Academic drawing methods, namely, the study of light on form, and how to capture proportion and gesture. Peter received his MFA from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, and has since gone on to study classical drawing and painting in France. The goal of this workshop is to create a finished drawing. This will be one long pose with the same model, no short poses or gestures. The teaching format will follow; lecture, demo, and individualized instruction.
