Expressive Figure Drawing: Mixed-Media Explorations

Instructor: Susan O’Neill

This class explores the essential stages of capturing a dynamic figure while working in a variety of mixed-media materials, including canvas, wax, Russian Sauce, ink, and more. Understanding these stages helps students move with confidence through the drawing process, whatever style, to gain confidence in the drawing abilities. Emphasis is on careful observation, structure, line quality, volume, compositions, technique, experimentation, and originality. Included are discussions of historical and contemporary works of art, instructor demonstrations, and focused attention to the hands, feet, and structure and vitality of a pose.

This class requires supplies. Most supplies and supply lists may be obtained at The Art League Store in the Torpedo Factory, room 217. The store hours are 11am – 5pm Sunday through Thursday and 10am – 5pm Friday and Saturday.  The Art League Store’s phone number is 703-548-8127.
