Expressing the Human Figure

Expressing the Human Figure
with Jill Lareaux
August 6-9, 10am-12:30pm
$150, must be age 18 or older

Drawing the human body can be daunting even for an experienced artist. We will use dry media and washes to train our eyes to really see and interpret the figure, to hone our drawing skills and increase our comfort level with this challenging subject. We will touch on principles of color use, drawing technique, and composition while working from the model.


Jill Lareaux has broad experience with the figure as a painter, printmaker, and sculptor. Her emphasis is on the succinct but expressive quality of the medium, with the figure as the vehicle for her message.
