Seeing Shapes: Figure Drawing with Brian Flowers

Want to take your stick figure drawings to the next level? Grab your paper, pencils and charcoal and join us for two hours of live-model drawing with instructor Brian Flowers. Learn about drawing supplies, how to draw gestures and use sighting techniques to improve speed and proportions in a series of two to five minute poses. After a short break, learn how to break down and draw the human form as basic shapes, followed by a fun show & tell.

No experience? No problem! This program is designed for figure drawing novices as well as those with previous experience. This is the first in a series of introductory drawing events that will focus on human form and figure in a fun, intimate atmosphere. Basic drawing supplies and boards will be available on a first-come, first-served basis—feel free to bring your own!

Please arrive promptly at 6 p.m. for introductions and refreshments. Due to the nature of this event—which may include a nude or partially nude model, doors will close at 6:15 p.m. until a break at 7 p.m. Availability is limited to 15 participants, 21 or older.
