What you'll learn in this figure drawing class:

Develop your artistic skills in life drawing classes online.

Working from the live model via online video conferencing with expert instruction from teachers who are professional artists, students learn about proportion, gesture, movement and perspective. Working in charcoal, graphite and ink, we move from short poses for sketches to long poses for complete, finished drawings. 

Whether you want to focus on drawing or are looking to develop your skills as a painter, figure drawing is the classical way to develop skills that will positively impact many aspects of your art practice.

Prerequisite: Drawing for Beginners.
