We have been working on studies of the human figure. Something most of my students are familiar with, but not comfortable. I wanted to encourage and create confidence in my young artists who have expressed interest in drawing people. I even have a few students who are interested in fashion design and have expressed a need to learn more about drawing figures for the sake of adding clothes to them. During our first day with figure drawing (before I broke out the charcoal) we eased into this project with simple pencil drawings of our class set of mannequins. I introducing the classic drawing technique of using 7 heads to keep the average proportions of a human figure.
**More pictures to come next week when we move into charcoal gesture drawings!**
Looks great! That’s what I’m working on now with my students.
