FIGURE DRAWING AND PAINTING   Using a professional art model we explore how to draw the human form using a variety of media. Students start with graphite and learn to use contour and cross contour lines. We move to charcoal and study light and plane structure. Between poses there are brief reviews of artistic anatomy.
