Drawing the Female Form: Inspired by the Photography of Anne Brigman

This event is no longer on sale.

Monday December 10

9:00 AM  –  12:00 PM

This week-long intensive drawing class will focus on the foundational drawing techniques for rendering the female figure, inspired by the photographs in the exhibition “Anne Brigman: A Visionary in Modern Photography”. Students will draw the model in a variety of poses exploring the influences of Brigman’s art, such as the PreRaphaelites and the Arts and Craft philosophy. Attention will be given to the importance of line, tonal value, contrast and texture to express life and atmosphere. The class will start with short poses and get longer towards the end of the week so as to enable students to work in more depth on a final project.
