Join me for a two day figure drawing at the Art Students League in NYC this fall November 4-5. Strong management of values in a composition is responsible for much of the power and visual impact of a work of art. Using the figure model as your subject, you will focus on structural drawing, gesture, and understanding the building blocks of tonal drawing. Explore the atmospheric use of tone in this two-day figure-drawing immersion. You create two kinds of work: a reductive drawing where you apply the charcoal first and remove the tone to reveal a strong value pattern. Next you draw on toned paper with white, where the charcoal or pencil is built up gradually to create form. Beginners very welcome.

Time: 10:00 am–4:30 pm
