Dates: Saturday June 16 & Sunday June 17 2018
Time: 9:30am - 4:30pm, both days
Price: $225 (includes HST + model fee)
Location: Southminster United Church, 15 Aylmer Ave in Old Ottawa South (Galt St entrance)
Instructor: Sarah Marie Lacy

Class Description

This class is intended for serious beginners and anyone unfamiliar with the basic tenets of classical figure drawing, particularly with an 18th century focus.

You will leave with a deeper understanding of:
Grace and movement and how this informs our thinking
Structural thinking and how to construct vs just copy
How to correctly use and think of your block in
What are the elements of an effective, accurate and beautiful contour
the rules of organic form and what is the shape of humanity

The workshop will be a combination of demos and practice time. During practice time, I will spend one-on-one time with each student, giving guidance, critique and support. We will always work from a live model.
